50s were quite similar on both sides of the iron curtain. So I got inspired by an original chair I’ve found in Bansko to design the primigenial piece for Design Apparat.
An obsessive modular repetition is the leitmotif of the design development of BANSKO BOO, a chair that draws its iconic force from the orthogonal series of boomerangs that determine the form of the seat, in a suspended relation between emptiness and matter.
Made of plywood finished with wax, plus tubular steel, BANKO BOO can be completed with a fabric cushion for added sitting comfort.
A brand and its collections of furniture taking inspiration from the Bulgarian design of the second half of the twentieth century, with a particular focus on the Soviet period. Rather than merely aiming for a vintage redesign or restyling, Design Apparat strives for a contemporary translation of a full range of cultural stimuli, with original proposals that share no common ground with the ostalgie revival.
