shiny hammer furniture by samuel aguiar

plee chair by shiny hammer. designed by the french designer samuel aguiar.

french brand, the primary purpose of shiny hammer is the creation of furniture for your home. at the border between use and art, the brand’s aim comes from the desire to create unconventional and timeless objects.

as a couturier or an architect would do, each creation becomes a representation of a lifestyle, an environment or a culture.

the creations are developed and produced, one by one, by the french designer samuel aguiar.

this chair is the result of a manufacturing process developed by shiny hammer called c.i.m. which is aimed at using a bending process which is rough yet sophisticated.

the end result is unpredictable, although controlled. as a result, each chair is unique.

closer look to the shape formed by the c.i.m process
