Studio BrichetZiegler evokes the spontaneous and the unrestrained with The Wild Chairs! exhibit at Paris Design Week.
With 10 chairs of distinct design strategy and material composition, this is a fun phantasmagoria of aesthetic exuberance and conceptual derrring-do.
Among our favorites we find Dom (above), a sinuous surprise that's hammered, molded, folded, and otherwise pleadingly coaxed from its origin as a single flat metal sheet. Luca (below) is made of a u-shaped piece of bent maple that's repeated 11 times and strategically cut to form a monocoque shell.
And Phil takes the Wire chair concept (with a wink and a nod to Platner) and draws them outward and inward and every which way to make a clever game of perception that also happens to resemble a chair.
Cool stuff. Read more about Dom, Luca, Phil, and the other seven (Arsenne, Farrah, Henriette, Jeannie, Marge, Marty, and Shaun) at Studio BrichetZiegler.
