Product news: London designer Simon Pengelly has created these curved wooden chairs with cut-out backs for British furniture brand Modus.
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.
Simon Pengelly previously created an airline seat that converts into a 2.2-metre-long bed for Virgin Atlantic.
Other wooden chairs we've recently featured include lightweight chairs by Bertjan Pot with wooden edges curved tightly over aluminium frames and the November chair by Veryday, which won a Gold Award at the iF Design Awards in Munich earlier this year.
