This way of casting creates organic shapes that arise depending on physics rather than on pre-designed decisions.
The Shell chair is inspired both by formal and structural biological references. The structure appears to be a shell natural development and its form evolves like a natural body composed by vertebra and spine, working as natural force and weight distribution. Ergonomically, the Shell is a "pillow container" where, according each user, can be adjusted or filled with less or more pilows. The chair is delivered with 4 long pillows. Design: Marco Sousa Santos Brand Name: Branca-Lisboa Year: 2009 Material: Birch Plywood and includes four cushions in natural cotton or leather
