THE ROUNDUP // AVANT GARDE SEATING WE LOVE
Our picks for conversation starting pieces you can really sink your you know what into:
PIEGATTO PIPO CHAIR // This curvaceous stunner was conceived by designer Alejandro Estrada for Piegatto. Two pieces of plywood never looked so good.
A-FRAME CHAIR BY EDWARD WORMLEY // We consider this A-Frame chair to be example A in a study of exactly what makes Wormley one of modernism’s foremost design icons.
VICCARBE'S AD HOC CHAIR // This design, created by the legendary Jean-Marie Massaud, is handcrafted from cast brass. It’s part modern art, part indoor-outdoor chair, and total perfection.
MATS THESELIUS EL DORADO CHAIR // You know how you know when a design is good? When a piece is 13 years old and still feels cutting edge. Such is the case with the birch, brass and leather El Dorado chair, created by Mats Theselius for Källemo in 2002.
AMSTERDAM CHAIR BY MAGNI HOME COLLECTION // The ideal example of a well-balanced chair: sculptural, delicate, and a bit menacing (Does the back not look like horns?).
SAJI CHAIR BY LAURA KISHIMOTO // The straightforward inspiration behind this curvy chair: geometry. Did we mention that Kishimoto designed this chair while still a student at the Rhode Island School of Design? We’ll take one of everything when she puts out her own collection.
