2005, Designed for Moroso, Materials: Polypropylene, 80X68X59 cm

The base of the chair is made of
polypropylene and produced through
plastic injection. Its design is reminiscent of
the pattern left on the shoreline by retreating
waves. The form is organic, and the lines are
light and soft in relation to the strength of the
material from which it was produced. The
chair's light weight assures multifunctional
uses in both private and public spaces.

Plastic injection is a popular method used in
producing plastic products, when a choice
can be made of the raw material to employ
from the wide variety of thermoplastics
available in the industry. These are polymers
that can be injected into a mold in their liquid
state and allowed to harden into a final state
of aggregation. Injection molding produces
a quality product in a quick process of
manufacturing, even when the product is
very complex. This allows freedom of design
in objects allocated for industrial production
in large quantities.

Ron Arad, (b. 1951 in Israel) is a well known architect and industrial designer with an international reputation; he has lived and worked in his London studio for over 20 years.

From your first encounter with Hironen's furniture, you stop thinking about furniture. You begin to think about strange libidinal creatures, that compel you into awe.
