Unusual chair designs that fit right in with a creative décor
The traditional often meets the modern, and sometimes, the unusual. Intelligent design and décor often finds a way to place the mundane with the unusual, creating a contrast that works extremely well for decoration and style. Going along with the same idea, checkout some of these unusual chairs, and perhaps imagine the décor that would suit them.
Woven carbon fiber chair
Ergonomic design and style are often accomplished using carbon fiber. An industrial designer from South Korea has successfully used carbon fiber for furniture, and has come up with a fantastic chair, “Luno.” With a size of 68cmx108cmx105cm, Luno is a hexagonal lattice construction on a light metal base. The designer has beautifully intertwined carbon fibers, which resemble branches of a tree in this chair.
Unusual chair frame by Ola Giertz
Rectangle is the shape chosen for this unique chair made up of foam and fabric covered molded wooden frame and four wooden legs. The chair frames the person sitting on it, and is perfect to for placement in any room of a house. It is pretty versatile and spacious, with walls and ceiling giving you a nice and quiet space to sit and relax. Coming to its versatility, the chair allows you to sit from any direction because it does not have a front, or a back. Moreover, you can sit on it as you do on a pallet or an easy chair, and you can recline the chair against wall so that you get a comfortable back support while sitting.
Kenny Folded Fabric Armchair
The Kenny Chair is a unique design created by Raw Edges for Italian brand Moroso. It is a pocket shaped seat that is fixed to a four legged frame made from oak. A loop of metal mesh, thin piece of upholstery foam, and a warp and weft fabric that has two-colored yarn woven in different directions make the seat of Kenny chair. Nothing much can be said regarding the comfort this chair offers, but as far as the design is concerned, it is unique and eye-catching.
Tadao Ando’s Dream Chair
The Dream Chair by Japanese Architect Tadao Ando is a comfortable and sculptural piece of furniture. Tadao Ando took the challenge of creating a design that would be remarkably unique and iconic, and he came up with the Dream Chair that perfectly suits the above stipulations. It is an innovation through design, wherein Tadao has brought into use two three-dimensional plywood sheets.
Tadao placed the plywood sheets in a shape that would generally be considered near impossible to achieve. If you like the design, you can order one for yourself with choices of the material (oak and walnut), with or without the front upholstered in leather, and an adjustable neck cushion.
Exquisite Serenad Chair
Serenad chair derives inspiration from nature, as the shape of the chair resembles that of a swan. Designer Ali Alavi has given the chair the shape of a sleeping swan with its head under its wings. The chair has an appealing look and extreme comfort and style owing to sheer metal and upholstery used as the core material. The elegant curves and the chrome base of the chair make it a focal point of any decor.
Japanese-Canadian architects Eiri Ota and Irene Gardpoit Chan have created this wonder chair out of acrylic composite. They have used a single sheet of acrylic composite and have designed it in a way that gives the chair the shape of peacock with its chic tail feathers wide open. Another interpretation of the design is that of a budding flower. Acrylic composite is a very durable material but difficult to modify, as it solidifies too fast to be comfortably molded.
Vermelha Armchair by Edra
Chaotic artwork is increasingly becoming popular, and Vermelha Armchair is one outstanding example of chaotic artwork. An epoxy-painted steel frame supported by aluminum legs is covered by a mishmash of a special rope with an acrylic and cotton covering. The typical interlaced twines show the level of skill and effort that has gone into the creation of this chair.
Terrace Chair Design by Kaare Baekgaard
This terrace chair has a unique design as compared to the conventional breed of terrace chairs. It is a rotating chair molded in polyethylene with a stainless steel base. The biggest advantage of having this chair is the very low maintenance it requires. If you want to see the chair glow, just connect a cable with low current to the base of the chair.
