This wooden + minimal chair is the perfect culmination of form + functionality
We often underestimate the importance of a great chair. When in reality we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And an exquisitely designed chair that I recently came across, and believe would be a great addition to any contemporary living space is the Loop Chair.
Designer: Annabella Hevesi
Designed by Annabella Hevesi, the Loop Chair is the kind of straightforward and simple furniture piece that instantly makes you fall in love with it, because of how minimally and cleanly it is designed. Built using wood, the Loop Chair has a traditional and archetypical character accentuated with tricky and progressive details that lend an air of character to it. The form of the chair follows a trapezoidal shape elevated by smooth ellipsoid curves, creating a furniture piece that is visually and geometrically intriguing. The surface of the chair is exceedingly soft, while the edges and curves are pretty sharp, creating an interesting contrast, that builds the character of the chair even further.
The seating section and the vertical backrest have been upholstered separately to increase comfort. A flexible fastener/spacer has been incorporated under the seating component. It is also replaceable, so you can customize and create one according to your personal choice and preference. Hevesi imagined the chair to be built from ash wood with an optional leather covering, however, she believes the chair would look amazing in oak, beech, and other fabric options too.
The Loop Chair is designed to be a neutral and versatile piece that focuses heavily on form, functionality, and aesthetics. The designer has maintained some flexibility in the design to allow for personalized customizations, therein creating a furniture piece that can be modified according to individual needs and tastes. The chair’s minimal and contemporary aesthetics allow it to seamlessly merge with any kind of modern living space, perfectly complementing different colors and material palettes.
