Kenneth Cobonpue - Bloom Chair
With the spring blooming outside my windows, I decided to share with you something blooming as well - The Bloom chair by the amazing Fillipino desinger Kenneth Cobonpue. Kenneth is an industrial designer known for his signature designs in natural fibres and materials. His designs mainly focus on nature's forms using rattan, buri, bamboo, and abaca (wiki).
Inspired by the graceful bloom of a flower, this lounge chair is sculpted by hundreds of fine running stitches radiating from the center of the seat creating subtle textures. Invisible supports form shapes reminiscent of soft and graceful musical tones. The Bloom sits on top of a steel base which provides a good counterpoint to its playful organic form.
