The new height of the iconic Vitra Eames DSW is ultra-stylish and beautifully comfortable in design, made from a moulded seat that’s designed for every ‘body’, atop a sturdy maple base. Every colour in the selection complements each other, so you can mix and match to suit your décor. With their new seat height, the Eames DSW Chairs are even better suited for use in combination with contemporary dining tables and interiors.
South African designer Porky Hefer created an awesome series of animal-themed nest chairs for Design Miami 2015. Entitled Monstera Deliciosa, the series includes a chair saped like an orca with a furry pink tongue and leather teeth, an anglerfish with a functional light serving as its lure, a pelican with a brown leather beak, a pufferfish, and a crocodile.
Each of the chairs, described as “nest environments,” was made using traditional South African skills, including splicing different fibers together, stitching, and weaving.
Hefer describes his new project:
“My pieces get people to think about nature, and its fragility, and make them consider how to protect it. They’re also about protecting local crafts so that these traditions don’t die out.”
