We love dining rooms, we love dining tables and we love dining chairs. We love their colors, their materials, their decorations, but most of all we love their design. Sometimes, the designers surprise us immensely and when that happens we have to share their brilliant work. Today we will present you the artistic work by the designer Benjamin Nordsmark, who has turned modern dining chairs into pieces of art.
Each dining chair had its own set of materials and working methods, clearly showing the inspiration behind each of them.
This is the Picasso chair, which is a mixture of old steel sheets and pipes. Nordsmark cut, shaped, and welded them together to create the sculptural piece. As it is evident by its name, it was inspired by Pablo Picasso, specifically his cubism paintings.
This chair is inspired in the M.C. Escher art work: the master of optical illusion. it’s as if you can see straight through the seat and back, due to the 3D patterns in different colors.
The body of the chair is constructed in oak, while the frame is built with steel.
This is the Gaudi dining chair and it is inspired, of course, by the columns in the Church La Sahrada Familia in Barcelona. Made of steel, the legs mimic the columns while the body is sturdy enough to sit on.
The interesting shape of the chair ends up giving off very interesting shadows.
The Fuco Ueda chair is named after and inspired by the Japanese painter known for her paintings of Japanese schoolgirls in her own surreal worlds.
