Demeter Fogarasi, a hungarian designer, imagines a chair looking frozen.

Demeter Fogarasi says that the foundation of his work is based on the concept of poetry in the context of design. Comparing it with narrative design. In conclusion, poetry is the act beyond function determines an object’s emotional content towards the user.

He started the design process with material studies, working with a biodegradable plastic (PLA), and natural textiles. His aim was to create a composite material that not only possesses good technical properties but also emphasizes naturalness, looks and feels intriguing and inspiring.

The idea was to create a concept furniture, which is concerned with the poetic nature of the material. While forming the furniture the originally soft material becomes rigid. He said that he wanted to save this moment of creation, when a piece of textile is “blown” onto the frame, forming a chair.
