Description

The main idea is the developing of a set of table and chairs that fights the action of wind.

The work presents the developing of two concept that have the same form but with different function:

  • BYE BYE WIND

  • BLITZBLANK

The first concept idea is BYE BYE WIND that solves one of the main problem during a dining: the action of wind. This set of table and chairs permits to use also paper or plastic plates/glasses without that they fly in presence of wind through simple grooves in the table that block paper or plastic plates/glasses when they are empty.

In the centre of table there is a hidden crushing bottles.

While the chairs in the back have a container that works to accommodate objects of various typology ( from cellular to tools).

MORPHOLOGIES

The set is composed by a table, four chairs and a cover with fluid forms. 

At the four corners of the table there are four grooves with different functions:

  • for spices;

  • for foods;

  • for tools.

The second concept idea is BLITZBLANK: the main idea is to create a table that helps to maintaining cleaner the environment. 

It has an unique system:

  • all the refusals of the dining go into the container under the plane of the table; so that people don’t need to rise up for throwing the garbage, remaining comfortably  on their chairs.


  • The paper plates or the paper glasses don’t fly with the action of wind because they have a specific system that blocks them on the table.


  • These systems of block, work in two different ways: in fact, rotating the containers of glasses,  the system under the plate rotates and the paper plate goes in the recipient under the plane. In this way the table is always clean or better there is really spick and span. Moreover the table don’t need of a table cloth.


  • The container under the table is inspectionable ( four cloves of plane can be removed for cleaning inside the container) and under the central hole, once that the dining is ended, is possible put a garbage bag for emptying the container easly.


  • The chairs in the back have a container that works to accommodate objects of various typology ( from cellular to tools).
