현대 사회에서 사람들 간의 대화는 주로 디지털로 이루어지고 말은 말풍선을 통해 왔다 갔다 한다. 사람들이 온라인에서 의사소통을 할 때도 의자에 앉는다는 점에서 아이디어가 시작되어 의자의 좌석과 등받이 형태가 말풍선과 비슷한 형태로 디자인하였다. 좁은 허리의 의자를 만들기 위해 고도로 압축된 합판과 스틸 루프를 사용해 의자의 안정성을 높였습니다.

In modern society, the conversation between people is mainly done in digital and the words come and go through speech balloons. The idea has begun from the fact that people do sit on chairs when communicating even online. The seat and the backrests of the chair resemble speech balloons. It gives comfort and tension at the same time by the delicate curves flowing along the chair and narrow bridge. To create the chair with the narrow bridge, highly pressed plywood and fiber were used. Stability of the chair was enhanced by adopting metal sheet for upholstery version, and steel loop for plywood version. And it is stackable.
