Before being perceived as an element of furniture, this design tends to fascinate by its underlying complexity translated in a simple strong form.
"Ondine" strikes the viewer as being somewhat organic: alive, supple and inherently mysterious
The modular exterior furniture design "Ondine", laureate of the Parckdesign competition 2007 "Embrassons les arbres" organized by "Bruxelles Environnement" and "Pro-Materia", is the fruit of a close collaboration between designer Michael Bihain and Belgian architect Cédric Callewaert.

Then I think you shud not forgetting to design it suitable for many different kinds of sitting/lying positions. This is quite a trend now i think..
