There’s been a time or two that blowup furniture has hit the market with a bang but for the most part, you were hovering so close to the ground while you were sitting that it was impossible to get up. Now there’s Anda, a chair that takes inflatable furniture to the next level by actually being something you and your guests would want to sit on. Designed by Tehila Guy, Anda was inspired by the idea of flat-packed furniture and its convenience but looking at it in a whole new way.
Instead of using the same material and assembly methods, this armchair goes out on a limb by using an inflatable seat and round, wooden rods for the base. To reduce the amount of space in the shipping package, Guy decided against traditional upholstery and went with transparent plastic for the seat. The clear material lets the wooden part show through in the design.
Despite the chairs unusual choice of materials, the design’s goal was to create a comfortable place to sit that actually looked good.
