Furniture: Painted Chairs with Bare Legs

May 21, 2009

Observed at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair: several painted chairs with unfinished wood legs (perhaps inspired by Herman Czech’s Side Chair?).

Above: Spanish lighting and furniture company Santa & Cole commissioned the Belloch Chair from Lagranja Studio for use in its headquarters, the Parc de Belloch estate near Barcelona. "We needed a cheap, stackable, easy-to-transport, and clean chair that is adaptable to any situation. The result has stylistic evocations of Charles and Ray Eames and very topical concerns for the environment: a special mix of recycled plastic and wood forms its elegant body, which is supported by legs made either from beech wood (indoor) or from aluminum (outdoor)." Contact Connecticut-based wholesale design studio Ameico for retailers.
