The concept is to create a sleek collection that focuses on highlighting the connecting junction between metal and wood.The idea is a flat pack furniture collection line appealing and attractive to assemble yourself. The idea is to wrap up and clamp the warm wood pieces with cool bright metal structure to fixate them into modern sleek furniture units such as tables, stools, shelves..etc. The minimal design emphasizes the connection to be a core design element. Wood is offered in natural finish, while metal is offered in various colours to fit your unique liveable interiors.
The Egyptian Thonet is an icon in the Egyptian community, found for decades in the local coffee shops, and a variation of the original design Thonet no.14.
The idea was to revive the diminishing Egyptian Thonets from streets and coffee shops.The concept is to re-use the same thonet components, but to enhance the design to suit our cultural needs. Stretching and axis rotation to the chair legs was applied to balance the widened seat, 3 variations of the seat were tested.
A collection based on the contrasting stability between opposite materials, finding the balance between them to reach the perfect mixture, portraying luxury and indulgence.
A cool twist to your classic to go coffee cup.
