Afro Chair by Yangsoo Pyo

June 2nd, 2011 by retail design blog

Description by the designer, Yangsoo Pyo: “Afro” is a chair that employed the image of the hair style “Afro Permanent hair.” Springs are used to visualize the tangled and puffed up texture of the afro hair. The springs used to create the “Afro chair” are the two-ring binder springs used to bind together a notebook. The two-ring binders do not get tangled but rather wraps around each other.

Therefore, there is no danger of destroying women’s stockings or knitwear. In fact the chair is very comfy. The manufacturing process of this chair begins with a simple iron frame. Then, the springs are used instead of the normal sponge and leather cover.
