Another case of happenstance. I come across the Tetris Chair by Gabriel Cañas on Coroflot Portfolio and all of a sudden the more popular design blogs happen having done the same at approximately the same time….
Tetris is a novel piece of furniture, inspired by the famous video game and the constructivism. The interesting thing about Tetris is its design fun, consisting of the five existing parts in the game converted to a three-dimensional version invites you to be one component of the chair.
Tetris is made of independent modules fiberglass for efficient production that results in a lightweight, eye-catching and durable.
