Where form meets function

Built of plastic and wood, the Illum Chair is designed off the female pelvis. Demaris and Mark conjured the idea while expecting their first child. The Barcelona-based studio and design duo worked from a desire to re-create the space that supports the beginning of life. And thus, they created the cradle-like seat in adult proportion, giving the wooden splat a rib-like aesthetic. (via Yatzer).
