Bice is a Happy Little Number

Bice is a Happy Little Number

The new Bice chair, from Italian firm E-ggs for Miniforms, has a cheerful aspect. It’s light and slight, but very much present; formally spare but with a distinctive aesthetic.

e-ggs chose the name wisely. “Bice” will be read in English as rhyming with “mice,” which isn’t terribly off-the-mark given the chair’s resemblance to a “beloved cartoon character.” However, in Italian it will be pronounced as “Beee-Cheee,” evoking the elegant silhouette of a bicycle and the popular Italian name meaning “she who brings happiness.”

Bice’s penchant to please results from its broad curved backrest, a subtle circular form echoed in the similarly circular seat, the two joined by the elegant back legs, that taper ever so subtly toward the floor.

Bice thrives on its look alone, yet, to sweeten the deal, it’s stackable too, making it charming and versatile.
