We are happy to announce that we have been awarded the Interior Design Magazine Best of Year 2016 – Honoree Award for our WW Chair designed by Hierve.
Described as a global design awards program dedicated to the year’s best products and projects. The Interior Design Magazine, Best of Year Awards honors the most significant work of the year as well as recognises designers, architects and manufacturers from around the globe.
The WW Chair, part of our 2016 Collection, designed by multidisciplinary studio Hierve – is one of our most popular furniture pieces to date. The two Ws in the chair’s name stand for Windsor and Wire, which allude to its form and materials. It is a hybrid piece, which gives a contemporary twist to a traditional design language.
Inspired by the classic lines of a Windsor chair, the WW Chair consists of a combination of solid wood for the seat and legs and shafts of 5mm powder coating metal wire extend upwards from below the seat. They fan slightly outwards from their point of origin before meeting the wooden backrest. This gives the chair a sculptural quality and sense of lightness.
