Simon Pengelly used steam-bent wood to form the seats and backs of the chairs, which are attached to a curving wooden frame with gently splaying legs.

Called Norse, the chair is intended as a contemporary take on a traditional Scandinavian seat and is available in a range of colours.

The chair was presented at the Modus stand at Edit by Designjunction in Milan last month where Paris-based designer Arik Levy also unveiled a furniture range with wooden bases influenced by traditional Japanese footwear.
