Bent dining chair by Tristan Frencken.

“BENT dining chair has a slender character with a wink to fifties design. Created by subtly bending aluminium, components attached visibly with screw connections: BENT is powerful by its simplicity. The collection includes two types of chairs, a slightly higher dining chair and a lounge chair with a wider and lower seatpad, and a small table as well, all available in colours black, white, mint and blush.

The chairs can be completed with a removable BENT SKIN, a 100% wool felt non-slip back and seatpad for added comfort.”

Yer fan by Studio Friso

“Yer is a sculptural functional piece, reminiscent of an Opium flower that has been industrialized into a seemingly solid block with cooling ribs.

It was designed as a contemporary addition to an old ambient style of ancient Constantinople. Where social activity took place low-to-the-ground with pillow beds and tapestries.
We’re talking 18th century, a time where elements of (middle-) Eastern mystery in illustrative paintings, rich fabrics and beautiful brass- and copperware made their way to western Europe, introducing a rich ‘Boudoir-style’ that even evolved to certain aspects in the ‘hippy-style’.”
