A New Take On Bentwood Chairs
Bright hues and a cool, split-wood design set these deceptively simple seats apart from the competition. Paris-based designer Arik Levy collaborated with Czech furniture brand Ton on this new collection of seating, which debuted at Milan’s Salone del Mobile earlier this month. Inspired by traditional wood-bending techniques, the bar stool, armchair, lounge and chair each have unique legs: each one is split, the two pieces bending in opposite directions for a subtly mod look. He also applied colour in a gradient, drawing on natural inspiration like sunrises, sunsets and the sea.
