Sitflip – The Chicken Salad Skateboard Chair
The Sitflip ($ Upon Request) designed by Boicut is a light and mobile chair. Playful in its imagery and detailed in execution. The challenge Boicut undertook was to make the drawings on the decks work in a two-dimensional as much as in a three-dimensional way.
Whether you use it at home or on your way outside, it will fit your needs. As mobility was one of the primary objectives of the design, the construction is kept to the bare minimum. Therefore the seating of the chair is integral part of the load-bearing structure. Just two supplementary tension rods are required for taking up the emerging drag forces. This makes it light, strong and easy to setup.
The relation between skateboard and graphics was always very strong. Lance Mountain, professional skateboarder and artist, puts it in his comment on the book disposable – a history of skateboard art, written by Sean Cliver: “Skateboarding has always been much more than the progression of stunts performed on a skateboard. There’s a whole creative mentality behind it all that has influenced our culture.” Graphics where always more then mere illustrations. They have a integral function for shaping the identities of those directly involved with skateboarding.
“We do think that Skateboard graphics are unique pieces of art,” explains Sitflip. This whole idea is very important as the chair is easily to disassemble – you can show them on your favorite spot on the wall. For this reason there are three wall mounting display sets included into the Sitflip – handmade.
Sitflip is simple, comfortable and mobile. ❚
