A roller coaster that is made of hundreds of cafe chairs is actually an artwork by Baptiste Debombourg. It is named Stellar and is part of the Nantes cultural program, running through August in France. The artist, Baptiste Debombourg, known for his unconventional work, transformed a public square using the very objects that usually occupy it, he took 1,200 cafe chairs and formed them into an elaborate roller coaster. Yes, the installation is static, but he made an appearance of movement by incorporating six brightly coloured chairs into a four sky-high loops that twist and turn from the ground.
According to Debombourg, sculptural work is generally part of a contextual approach, and he operate in a space with materials chosen specifically for it.
The inspiration for this installation stems from addressing the great presence of outdoor cafés and restaurants within the city centre.
