Serpentina

Serpentina – Description / text

When we were commissioned to design a dining set, we found that most tables and chairs that we know have a lot of joints and fastenings. We understand that this complication may be required to produce a durable chair but we nonetheless want to avoid it.

Serpentine works around this problem because it isn’t built: it’s a pair of steel ribbons bent and fixed to themselves to achieve a comfortable and sturdy geometry. These ribbons have a more robust or more delicate appearance according to their perspective.
