"Caning has always caught our eye," said the designers. "It is functional, sustainable, resistant, lightweight and most importantly it reminds us of furnishings from the past."
Sections of beech wood were steam-bent to create the rounded frame. Curved elements are joined to make a hexagonal shape around the outside of the chair.
More poles connected to the corners support the cane material, often referred to as rattan after the Southeast Asian plant it is sourced from.
A pair of bars is bent in two places and run from the front to the back of the seat, forming four legs.
The chairs are available in both natural finishes or painted bright colours. Cushions can be added to the seat for extra comfort.
