Anti Crise Chair by Pedro Gomes

In an era marked by the economic crisis we are pushed to analyze what is our role as designers in the creation of change and definition of new habits. The Anti Crise chair is a chair beyond the functional and ergonomic and communicates it self as an object embedded in cultural and social values. Here the chair re-thinks the act of saving and connect it to a traditional and daily use object. This way, juts like the name suggests, Anti Crise promotes the act of saving in a playful and interactive process.

Here the interactive process was carefully designed in 3 sequential steps.

  • The first through the traditional money pot here reinterpreted.
  • The second element works with the visual and tactile notion of “emergency”, playing with pre existing notions allied to emergency equipment. This symbolic suggestion allows communicating the limited access to the saved money.
  • The third, the usual gesture of breaking the money pot is replaced by a new material personality.

Here the act becomes more personal and labored through the woodcut using a handsaw – integrated element of the design. Anti Crise chair is an experimental object, a furniture piece played as a manifest.
