Osko+Deichmann extends kinked steel furniture range for Blå Station
Stockholm 2014: Berlin design studio Osko+Deichmann has extended its range of kinked tubular steel chairs for Swedish brand Blå Station.
The Superkink armchairs and sofas feature tubular steel frames that have been folded to produce sharp angles.
Osko+Deichmann's kinking technique came about as an alternative to using soft curves when bending steel.
The designers' method means that the metal does not lose its strength.
The Superkink chairs have upholstered seats and backrests, plus fabric loops that wrap around the armrests.
They were first shown Blå Station at Stockholm Furniture Fair last year but now come in a range of bright colours.
The pieces were created by Osko+Deichmann with the same techniques used for the studio's previous Kink chairs and the colourful Straw chairs, which now come in a smaller size plus a bar stool and lounge chair.
They are made of lacquered, galvanised steel so are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The designers have also added a three-legged table to the collection.
