On May 30, 2008, singer Kayne West featured the Placentero on his blog. Therein, he described the lounge chair as having “a modern feel with a smooth fiberglass outer shell and tailored leather interior offered in a variety of color options.”
The Home Decorating Trends magazine, Trendir, describes the fiberglass Placentero lounge chair as “pleasurably comfortable – giving [you] the chance to make any movement and create whichever position you like,” just as the fetus does while encapsulated in the womb.
Of the lounge chaise, the home interior and design tip provider Homistic says, “The fiberglass-made Placentero … [is] stable in every position, even when it’s upside-down.”
Of its space age design, Trendhunter Magazine describes the Placentero this way, “When everything in the world is getting to you and you wanna just curl up in a ball … do it in style and get yourself one of these Placentero Chairs …. Sort of taking you back to when you were … well not born yet (cos we ALL remember how comfortable THAT was?!) There is an 18kg counter weight in the bottom of the chair so you can curl up in all sorts of different poses to your hearts content. The outer cover reinforced with glass fiber and finished with coat-gel, helps to minimize scratches.”
Freshhome praises the Placentero’s space design: “The outside sphere plastic surface is fiberglass and is finished with coat-gel which helps to erase scratches using polish paste. The seat’s leather comes in multiple colors.”
Of her experience test driving the Placentero at ICFF 2008 (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), 3rings’ blogger Michelle Bikic said, “Sinking into this innovative womb like chair feels great. It lets you stretch or curl up, while hugging and rocking you around. At times it felt tipsy, but that tipping point made me want to wiggle around in it even more after I was told that it would be impossible to tip over.” She went on to point out the lounge chair’s many possible uses: “While rocking away, I thought of different spaces that could benefit from the sophisticated fun this unique, over sized and futuristic looking chair offers – lounges, break rooms, media rooms, bedrooms, playrooms for kids and grown-ups, or best of all outside on a grassy patch.”
