The chair’s shape finds inspiration in childhood games, such as the one, where accuracy is key in tossing a ring onto a vertical barbell. It also evokes the challenge of mental puzzles, with interconnected circles requiring the right angle for separation.

The design reflects the unstoppable nature of children driven by the desire to win games. The immersive experience of being completely absorbed in a task and giving one’s all for success is likened to the powerful motivation felt while working on exciting projects. For the designer, this passion manifests in discovering new shapes within furniture design.
