Wire-frame fur­ni­ture

Condé Nast House & Garden - - MILAN REPORT -

It’s not a re­cent in­no­va­tion by any means, but steel-rod-struc­tured fur­ni­ture was ubiq­ui­tous through­out the lead­ing fur­ni­ture col­lec­tions, of­ten mak­ing more of a state­ment than the more up­hol­stered seat­ing. The ap­peal is a lean, el­e­gant mod­ernism and per­ceived econ­omy of de­sign that mixes bril­liantly with more ro­bust pieces. The trick? The older, less en­gi­neered-look­ing the bet­ter. Brazil­ian ar­chi­tect Lina Bo Bardi’s rare deckchair at Nil­u­far De­pot and Kon­stantin Gr­cic’s 2013 Traf­fic chaise longue for Magis 2013 were stand­outs of the style.
