Dina chair by Adam Nathaniel Furman for Beit Collective

Dezeen Showroom: designer Adam Nathaniel Furman has put a colourful twist on a traditional Lebanese style of furniture to create the Dina chair for the brand Beit Collective.

Beit Collective produces contemporary design inspired by the Middle East, and the Dina chair is part of its Beiruti collection, which is produced in Lebanon.

The Dina chair is based on a traditional style of seating from Lebanon

Furman based the chair's design on the "Khayzaran" chair, a wooden chair with a woven rattan seat, similar to Thonet's Vienna coffee house chair.

Instead of the traditional cane, Furman's woven seat and backrest are made from a durable castor oil-based bioplastic.

The wooden frame is designed to emphasise the pattern of the weave and also to echo the look of a traditional upholstered chair.

Suitable for both indoors and outdoors, the Dina chair is made to order and can be customised with a choice of 12 bright colours for the threads. There are three standard wood options – maple, beech or oak – as well as others on request.
