óceo is a segmented chair by industrial design student Pedro Arturo that was inspired by human nature meant to reflect “our structural and systematic way of living and showing how visceral and instinctive we are.” The chair’s open volume is established by the elliptical modules that make up the overall structure.
The segments are spaced out and evolve as they move up and down to create the seat area and the outer shape. An interior structure supports the entire chair while holding the modules in place. Beyond that, only four screws were used for extra safety.
By remaining open and being able to look through the piece, the chair carries a beautiful visual weight without being too heavy or bulky.
The design was developed in CAD and then each piece was CNC cut.
