The Fluid Ribbon Chair

I designed a chair that attempts to communicate movement and flow while sitting. It feels incredible! I am in the process of producing it in several materials…stay tuned…

…and now in bamboo…

and now on Kickstarter: THE FLUID RIBBON CHAIR *FIRST RUN BAMBOO* by Michael d'Amato — Kickstarter

Here is a series of images that shows the whole development process.

and now on Kickstarter:


Call it a “project” if you want to. If you do, then post your supporting development sketches, etc. CORE is a website for designers and we love to see that kind of stuff.

But as it stands, this is purely a promotional sales pitch, and in violation of CORE Discussion Board Posting Standards

How Not to Contribute:

We are very tolerant of differing views and opinions, but there are some things we do not tolerate at all. Offenders may be warned or immediately banned. Ultimately the moderators have final say, but as a guideline, please avoid –

  1. Overt self-promotion and advertising. A short link to your studio, blog, portfolio or product in your signature is fine as long as it is relevant and your comment is the focus of your post. A new user with a 2 word post and several links in the signature will most likely be immediately banned. Don’t distract from the content. Overly distracting animated gifs are discouraged in both signatures and avatars, and images are not allowed in signatures. Please keep your signatures to a simple link or two and a simple line of text or two. Make your statement with your post, not your signature! Judgement is up to our moderator team.

  2. SPAM. You know what it is. Don’t do it. If you find SPAM, please do not respond to it, it only makes the moderators’ job more difficult. We do our best to delete all SPAM as soon as possible.

  3. Trolling. Comments that only serve to be provocative, anger others, insult or defame will not be tolerated.

  4. Commercial Activities. > No direct selling of goods and services> .

  5. No job postings. Please use our sister site: > > Links to a coroflot post are great though.

I’m willing to let this stand until 7 November, 2012, unless we can see some development work associated with it. I will delete it after that date.

Thank you.
