Furniture with curves has always been appealing. A lot of designs that feature this characteristic have become classics. Remember the Panton Chair? Its design revolutionized the furniture industry. But what about curved sofas and sectionals? They have a lot of flair too. In fact, they’re making a comeback in a lot of contemporary interior designs. While they are definitely full of potential, curved sofas can also be quite pretentious.
Pelicanus Iris looks more benign than some of Hefer’s toothier models, and the ample lower beak of the bird forms a cocoon fit for lounging. Perhaps the old fable about storks and babies fuels human desire to want to curl up inside this seat. His creations initially have the light air of something perhaps designed for a child, but end up bringing out the child still hiding inside adults — the child who wants to be swinging in that seat.
When it comes to accent chairs, the idea is that they’re singular and stand out from other chairs in the house through their design which seamlessly combines looks with comfort. One such example is the Ficus chair. It has a clean and sleek design with a thin metal base and an undulating seat moulded after the human body. It’s like sitting in a blossoming flower.
No matter what form his work takes, it is part of an ever-growing artistic movement celebrating individualistic hand-crafted pieces as an antidote to today’s mass production. The mastery of different materials and the high level of workmanship is evident in the details on all his chairs. For example, mere stitching between the sections of leather is elevated to an important design detail on all the seats.
