Ger­man min­i­mal­ism meets art deco drama

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

Es­teemed Dutch ar­chi­tect Pe­ter Ghy­czy set up his epony­mous fur­ni­ture firm in 1971. His son, Felix, joined the fam­ily busi­ness mar­ry­ing its sig­na­ture Bauhaus min­i­mal­ism with the graphic pat­terns of the art deco era.

Ghy­czy’s fur­ni­ture can be seen at es­tab­lish­ments as di­verse as the Ace Ho­tel in down­town LA and the Ritz Carl­ton, Geneva. Pic­tured is its GP01 chair, set in splen­did iso­la­tion, save for the liv­ing greens that sur­round this dra­matic glass room. Prices for the cus­tom-or­dered chair, with a char­coal frame, start from ¤5,330 from Lon­don-based Staffan Toll­gard De­sign Group. ghy­czy.com; toll­gard.co.uk
