The Oceo Chair by Pedro Arturo is Inspired by the Need to Reflect

Taking on a curious form, the Oceo Chair is indeed a chair and not some sort of wooden sculpture. And, despite its highchair-like aesthetic, it is not made with babies in mind, but adults. In fact, the Oceo Chair was inspired by the human nature of reflection. Specifically, as the designer puts it, it addresses the need to reflect "our structural and systematic way of living and showing how visceral and instinctive we are."

Made up of elliptical modules, the Oceo Chair appears like a squat vortex. In a way, thoughts such as these can create a sort of black hole in the mind. Created by industrial design student Pedro Arturo, the interior of the seat does look like a traditional chair. Overall, it is quite creative.
