    I think it could be called Bubbles.

    A cloud is very different.

  • a bit peculiar; Ron Arad as calvinist?

  • it doesn’t seem that comfortable.

  • Maxence

    Is it stackable ?

  • Nathan

    Not so excited about the chair itself, but I would love to see some shots of it being made.

    Fantastic piece. You guys are so easy on the trigger to critic other designers work. It would be lovely to see the work done by most of you here. I bet you would be scared shitless to show us all and feel the wrath down your necks.

    I wish it were significantly smaller, had a chin strap and could be worn as a helmet.

    Despite the fact that it cannot be, I still like it, at least in the same way I like portions of Greg Lynn’s design of his own house. Oddly pomo-ish symbology. Somewhat psychadelic. Could somehow end up in a Toys R Us and not look too out of place.

    Kapoor Koons with a sprinkling of Kesey.

    Richard Hutten once stated ‘himself, he would lay a little scapecoat in it’

    It is originally designed for a ‘puppethouse’ for Oog magazine (might also that Oog just was the one to publish it, I don’t know) – so, very small.

    And I’m sorry to say, but I absolutely hate it

    I think This is hot.!!!!!!!!!!!
    If you steered your comments correctly with enthusiasm, There may just be a chance of some follow up postings showing how difficult objects such as these are actually produced. EDUCATIONAL
    This forum may actually be a place to learn some serious techniques, instead of a superficial placement of objects for all you sharp shooters!

    Very retro virus.

  • Xit

    Just when we didn’t think it was possible to squeeze another chair from the rectum of design Hutten delivers this chromed hemoroid, so befitting.

  • Nathan

    Yes indeed, how is it produced?! Any guesses?

  • nuku

    it suggest me an insect eye ;-O

  • ZUY

    @ nuku it’s polished, nickel-plated cast aluminium…

  • Bubbles micro trend in the air…
    … this piece follows Karim Rashid’s colored “bubbles” in a gallery in Milan last year
    … and bubbles lamp by Jaime Hayon

  • bubble micro trend again with buubles clouds from Holland , the country of Richard H.

  • Reminds me of The Bean in Chicago!!!

  • degs

    Even though it’s slightly Ron Aradish, I think it still manages to please the eye. Would have loved to see more pics of it’s production. It’s a pity that most designers don’t bother to add some of their concept sketches!

  • all line drawings are on richard hutten’s website

  • Nice, hot, art-design!

  • xtiaan
