But their ergonomic, metal seat is now covered in a subtle layer of upholstery, which seems to melt into their frames and allows the designs to fit more comfortably into a home interior.
"For Soft Fronda, we use the original metal seat as the foundation for upholstery that is seamless, so there is no visible stitching," said Hecht.
"This gives an experience of visual softness in interiors, with the fabric seat bridging each side of the wooden structure."
The accompanying Fronda table features power outlets hidden below its surface, which allow the piece to transition easily from a home office setup to a long dining table.
"We wanted to avoid the strange leap that occurs when a graceful table needs to accommodate power – they all appear so technical," Colin added.
"Instead, the Fronda table maintains a visual simplicity and quietly gives another dimension of performance."
