The dark aluminium frame lends solidity to the front, while the back is noteworthy for its elegant light construction. The seat consists of large, soft rods, highlighted by visible stitching.

    It looks like he produced a perfectly good design, realised it looked too corporate and added the cord handles to humanise it. Should have stuck with what he had and focused on the nice contrast between the thick black legs and thin white ones.

    I see the traditional, but where is the new take?

  • Gravy

    Agree with Felix. The side table (minus the cord) is successful due to the mix of bar and square stock.

    That chair fights with my eyes.

  • Michelle

    I'm not a huge fan. By the way, the designer is not a man, but a woman. Her name is Hella Jongerius!!
