osmo outdoor chair | design numen/foruse
Osmo is a chair developed on the classic typology of chairs for terraces of hotels and restaurants along the Adriatic coast.The steel structure combined with wooden seat and backrest provides an optimal equilibrium of comfort and rigidity required in demanding context of extensive use in exterior exposed to sun and seawater. A bent tube structure of expressive geometry defines the frame in which the seat and backrest made of wooden slates are inserted into. The characteristic inclination of front legs combined with extremely wide, fractured armrest, results in a biomorph appearance reminescent of an insectiod robot from SF movies.

NUMEN/FORUSE IS A CROATIAN-AUSTRIAN DESIGN COLLECTIVE WORKING IN THE FIELDS OF SCENOGRAPHY, INDUSTRIAL AND SPATIAL DESIGN AND CONCEPTUAL ART. THE GROUP WAS FIRST FORMED IN 1998 AS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS.
Under the banner ForUse they designed for Cappellini, ClassiCon, Desalto, Interlubke, Magis, mdf Italia, Moroso and Zanotta. Numen/ForUse designs interiors and outdoor spaces in cooperation with architecture studios 3lhd (Croatia) and Imarea (Austria). In 2008 the collective turns its focus towards configuring objects and concepts, an activity resulting in more hybrid and experimental works such as the Numen-Light series, Tape Installation and Net. From 2004 onwards, they became intensely involved with scenography. Numen/ForUse are the only Croatian contemporary product designers whose works are regularly represented in global anthologies of contemporary design.
