This Robo Chair was Inspired by a Björk Music Video, and Meccano Toys

This visually distinctive Robo Chair is by Italian industrial designer Luca Nichetto. It’s not quite flatpack, though it does break down.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

Nichetto cites two interesting sources of inspiration for the chair’s design. The first is the Chris-Cunningham-directed music video for Björk’s “All is Full of Love,” where “a pair of robots appear to gain emotional human consciousness, ultimately kissing and hugging.” The second is “Meccano toys, which can be constructed and dismantled; [similarly] the Robo’s separate components can be disassembled and placed in a compact box, allowing easy transport.”

Nichetto designed the chair, and five others, for Scandinavian furniture brand Offecct. Just two of the designs remain in production, and sadly the Robo wasn’t among them. (I imagine the Robo’s seat was tricky to mass produce!)
