A winding roller coaster sculpture made out of hundreds of colourful café chairs

Baptiste Debombourg defies all predictability with his mind bending, three-dimensional pieces. He sheds architectural conventionality, and instead works with shapes and patterns in a way that is nourishing to the eye and baffling to the mind. While some artists play around with the idea of containing chaos, forcing an idea into a space, so that it can be examined easily, Debombourg prefers to take ordinary materials and create that chaos.

In this occasion, has transformed a public square using the very objects that typically occupy it—taking 1,200 café chairs and forming them into an elaborate roller coaster. Although the installation is static, Debombourg created movement within the sculpture by incorporating six bright colours and four sky-high loops that twist and turn far from the ground.

The installation, named Stellarwas built as a part of Le Voyage à Nantes, and will be located within the Place du Bouffay in Nantes, France until August 20th. Its inspiration stems from addressing the great presence of outdoor cafés and restaurants within the city centre, as well as an artwork Robert Delaunay produced for the Paris World’s Fair in 1937. (via Junk Culture)
