SIT ON ANY SIDE
The somersaulting BEAR can be placed on four of its sides to form a comfortable seat: two sides make a lower chair for children, and two a higher one comfortable for adults. The BEAR cannot be perturbed – the contours of its body always ensure a stable footing.
The pieces are uncommonly long-lived furniture, even in the most extreme conditions. The archetypal forms were manually pounded into negative molds, later fired at high temperature from chamotte clay mass into exceptionally hard, durable, frost-resistant, water-resistant, chemically inert, UV resistant and easy to clean pieces. The furniture is hollow thanks to the method used to press their forms, making them light and easily arranged. They can be fixed to any foundation, and any form of electronics may be installed in their voids. They can also accommodate any type of heating, as piping can be installed inside their shapes. They meet the hygenic standards of bathrooms, and are easy to clean. They are ideal as resting places or heated (or cooled) seatings in spas, saunas and pools.
