Sometimes a bit of rustic essence is needed when you design for flexible scenarios. This is aptly proven by the ‘Carry On’, a portable seating solution by Mattias Stenberg, which mimics the shape of a barrel like component. Designed for people who have to work outdoors (in public places) most of the time for their projects, the visual nature of the seat intentionally follows an unassuming object, so as to form an unobtrusive yet accessible element of the public place.
In simpler terms, the design doesn’t stick out as a pretentious piece of furniture, but rather serves as practical seating mechanism where people can take their short respite from work. In this regard, the shape and form of the seat is defined by simple roundish lines, while the external stitched cloth finish alludes to good craftsmanship.
Moreover, since Carry On is designed to be used in places where normal seats are not available, the element of portability holds its own significance. The creator does assure us that the conception is fully compact and portable in such circumstances. Even, when it comes to storage, the hardy barrel-like seat can simply be stacked, thus not requiring additional storage space for its keeping.
