Golden Gate Bridge reinterpreted as chair by EAJY
One of the best things about design is that it can take inspiration from anywhere, translating any existing forms, services, or phenomena into a functional object form. Berlin-based studio EAJY for example got so awestruck by San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge iconic form, that they decided to recreate it in a comfortable, and multifunctional wooden chair. The studio was founded in 2015 by Eric Chang and Johnny Hu, and the Beams Chair is their first ever flagship product that goes on sale in the framework of an indiegogo campaign.
The final form was based on a competition entry product at IMM Cologne 2013, and following the committee's advice., the guys have been working on making the chair more ergonomic and comfortable ever since. As far as the Golden Gate reference is concerned, they took the bridge’s L beam and recreated it with using wood and the latest wood cutting technologies. The change from the industrial material of steel to high quality North-American Grade Ash led to a warmer, and most definitely lighter piece. Moreover, the chair’s cleaned-up design and flexibility makes it applicable in a great variety of environments from dining rooms to home offices.
