Walky is a chair we designed as a reinterpretation of a bistro chair. We got inspired by the cafes in the big cities around the world and by a particular activity that people enjoy doing there: sitting and seeing other people walking on the street. For Walky, we wanted to freeze the moment of movement when a person is walking and translate that motion to an ordinary chair by giving it legs with feet.
As a result, we got a chair that naturally speaks to people because of its movement, whimsical nature, and the memories it evokes in the users. Sitting in Walky is an entirely different experience than sitting in other chairs.
When Walky is placed with other siblings, they create a chaotic and playful sense of community within spaces. Walky was envisioned to serve public areas where people are the protagonists.
Walky is an entirely hand-made chair with solid hardwood connected by a laminated spine that functions as the main structure and connector of its components. Its shoes are the most fun element to play with, material-wise, since that is what gives the contrast and personality needed for any environment.
These shoes can also be hand-turned from either natural or dyed hardwood or, in a more luxurious version, machined and polished with beautiful metals such as aluminum, bronze, brass, or stainless steel.
