SKINNY LEGS

February 5, 2012

Sorry, I though I captured the info on this chair, I think It’s Roche Bobois but I don’t see it on their website, It’s really cool huh?  I am feeling like wire and metal frames like this are gaining in popularity.  No longer just “mid-century modern” updated forms and newly hatched ideas take this look right to modern.  The light airy style is also the prefect foil to larger upholstered items and bulky wood occasionals.  To get this look, shop local antique stores, eBay and retailers like CB2, West Elm and Design Within Reach.

This shelving unit is the work of the furniture studio Neue Tische.  The furniture looks simple because it is simple.

Perhaps the motivation for this performative simplicity originates from the fact that Neue Tische’s founders, Mathis Burandt and Frank Skupin, came to furniture by way of architecture. While searching for simple tables to furnish their interior spaces, they found that nothing corresponded to what they had in mind. And because you can’t design an interior space without also furnishing it, Burandt and Skupin came to the conclusion that they themselves should design furniture – first as architects and later as principals of Neue Tische.
