‘twin chair’ by philippe nigro

based on the idea of two-in-one, these twin chairs remain functional even when stacked. the difficulty in putting them together lay in the juxtaposition of two materials that have distinct physical properties. fitting the two chairs together means cutting down these materials to the absolute minimum while retaining mechanical resistance, which required knowhow in both joinery and metalwork. mono-materials – wood and metal – ensure that ‘twin chairs’ are easy to recycle. maison & objet 09: twin chair by philippe nigro maison & objet 09: twin chair by philippe nigro maison & objet 09: twin chair by philippe nigro
