franco-portugese designer toni grilo has created a series of limited edition stainless steel furniture for the young portugese brand, riluc.

five pieces were recently shown at maison et objet 2011 in paris, each hand made out of polished stainless steel, some taking up to 150 hours to produce. the collection, which often combines metal with other refined materials has expanded to include the ‘aline’ stool and chair, ‘bidendum’ chair, ‘many wolds’ chair and ‘suspens’ armchair.

  • I have been in Maison and I really like all the barnds that were exposing. The ones I would like to noticed are Boca do Lobo and Christipher Guy

  • Wow. I want one.

    Joy says:
  • it looks even more uncomfortable than the bold chair of big game

    michel says:
  • Really nice shapes (I guess I have to sit there to prove the comfortability). This furniture remembered me the artwork of Jeff Koons.

    Juan Orozco says:
  • Um…ick. Cold. In all senses of the word. Grandiose. And ugly. I’m wondering who would purchase one, and why?
