mirko mielke: le confident / la causeuse

a series of wooden outdoor furniture benches and chairs was created by german designer mirko mielke and showcased at his exhibition titled ‘le confident’.

a key element of his designs was to signal a certain attitude about social interactions rather than putting a focus on comfort. this is especially apparent in his double seater chair which allows two people to sit in discreet distance of each other, thus, seeking to facilitate conversational exchange amongst its users.
