Crustacean-Copied Chairs
These Clever Seating Arrangements by Simona Sacchi Mimic Barnacles

Inspired by the sea barnacle, these nature chairs will populate the floor as welcomed guests rather than unwanted pests. BalanUS is an award-winning project by designer Simona Sacchi. The unique and cylindrical forms have a likeness to crustaceans, which makes them great for seaside homes or nautical-themed abodes.

The name BalanUS is taken directly from the inspiration of the project. Balanus Amphitrite is a specific type of acorn barnacle, which is normally in colonies. The chairs resemble this by coming together and mimicking the colony in a seating area. The chair designs are in white and a brownish orange, which are similar in color to the Balanus Amphitrite, but they would look good in any color combination and may even suit a mixture of colors.
