Carnaval Chair – A Rocking Chair Concept by GLID Studio

Carnaval Chair designed by Guido Lanari & Jesica Vicente

Carnaval Chair is a Latin Rocking chair where the concept ‘motion generated by the user’ is related to the traditional Latin American Carnivals, where the inspiration for this chair came from.

The materialization of the Carnaval chair is through the wood as an allegory to nature, and color as a sensory expression.

Carnaval Chair offers an innovative shopping experience since the user is able to customize his chair by choosing the type of wood and the color of both frame and cords. This customization capability is the result of an analogy of the costumes on carnival parties.

This Latin Chair reflects the ludic characteristics of these parties and renders it in visual motion generated by the twisting of the surface that defines its structure. Its topology results in a rocking chair,  which strengthens the concept “motion generated by the user.”
