1010 Bina Chairs by Frank Person for Kusch+Co.

When out for a great meal at a great restaurant with great service, we still want to be blown away by the intricate details that seem like second-nature to an exquisite, fine dining server. Sure, they’re putting on a show (we all know how that goes) but the ease in which they pour a bottle or hold a large platter is something of a phenomenon.

The Beautiful 1010 Bina Chairs Bring Together a Timeless Look with Contract Quality for Any Setting.

While not designed for the hospitality or service industries, the 1010 Bina by Kusch+Co. dish up a fancy platter of their own… except instead of serving food, it’s instead a seat that sits poised atop colorful legs. As the designer of the chairs, Frank Person, describes them within the Kusch+Co. website, they represent “stability paired with elegance”. Combining solid wood with a fine figure that has been designed to the cut specified by the UK-based designer.

Continuing, Kusch+Co. speaks of the 1010 Bina chairs being “a synthesis of simplicity and playfulness”. Using his eye for color and shape, after having been trained as a glassblower at the glass-working school of Hadamar, Frank Person brings to life the graceful, platter-esque chairs for the contract furniture company Kusch+Co.
