Nae Tanakorn — 'Five Lounge chair', 2021
The Five Lounge Chair is inspired by the features of sea anemones. The chair’s form is comprised of a flexible, tubular cushion and a discreet timber support-frame. Painstakingly made by hand using a plywood lamination technique, the frame consists of compressed plywood and 2 layers of American white oak veneer. The Haute Nested Table maximises usability while ensuring a small footprint. Two tables nest within one another. Making reference to the maidenhair leaf in colour and form, the table is made from walnut veneer, paired with marble. A delicate shadow line runs the length of each leg, giving the impression of a thin stem.
