About

The idea of the chair is simple - we wanted to bring the fun back into furniture! From first sketches and prototypes (that you can all see on FB), we've come a long way to professional production. Professional production processes require quantity. After 5 prototypical pieces (that you can see in the video), we now have to take the hurdle of producing a 100 pieces.

Once we have the project funded, we'll order the 100 plastic pieces. These hollow, translucent rotational-mould plastic bodies will be handfilled with liquid concrete. Once the concrete is hardened out, the tumbling effect works. Our upholsterer will be producing the cushions in parallel. Then, a light grey or dark grey cushion will be fixed on top of the plastic body and it's ready for delivery!

Risks and challenges

Sitting on Baron is at your own risk. It takes a little training until you get it right. So please: be careful when first sitting on it! And: use only privately and give a little advice to people before letting them try it out!

Concrete is a natural material. Slight changes in tone aswell as darkening with the time are absolutely normal.

The plastic piece aswell as the cushion are high-quality, industrial standard. Both our partners work with the German car industry and deliver absolutely reliable quality.
