FLOID is a young industrial design office based in Stuttgart. For the upcoming “blickfang” tradeshow in Stuttgart and Basel FLOID presents his recently finished loungechair. Florian Bürkle, founder of FLOID and designer of the chair looks back on 20 years of skateboarding which have influenced his work. The shape of the seating shells is inspired by skateboard decks. Polyurethane bushings which are used in skateboard trucks are put between the shells and a bent metal frame. These shockmounts make the slightly upholstered decks flexible. They adapt easily to every body shape. The result is the exceptional “deckchair” designed by FLOID.
