WILD WILD WEST

February 07, 2018

When thinking of the aesthetics of the Wild West, leather hides, dark stone and solid wood come to mind. This week, we bring you five pieces whose rustic yet sophisticated designs fit the western atmosphere.
KANT TABLE
Craig Bassam & Scott Fellows, 2014
The Kant Table studies the contrast of solid and light, strong and elegant, and sharp and curved. Originally designed for a private commission project, this desk features a sturdy tabletop with soft corners above a seemingly light base, buttressed by twin beams and angled legs.
PELLE
Lorenz Kaz, 2013
The Pelle chair, whose name is taken from the Italian word for pelt or leather, has a semi-circular back and armrests which clearly reflect the language of Scandinavian design classics. The union of Italian and Scandinavian influence undoubtedly produces a uniquely beautiful design.
ADNET
Jacques Adnet, 1950
In 1950, Jacques Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house, Hermes, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories which included this brass riveted rectangular Adnet mirror. The combination of materials brings a unique flare to an otherwise simple design.
INCAS
Angelo Mangiarotti, 1978
A development on the previous Eros system, the Incas features the same structural idea of balance. It was later designed in other stone materials with suitable finishes, and is now being produced in a sophisticated solid wood version, proving that any great idea can be further developed without losing any of its force or poignancy.
CH07 X EDELMAN
Hans J. Wegner, 1965 | 2017
Carl Hansen & Sons partnered with Edelman to release a line of six Hans Wegner pieces sold exclusively through premiere dealers. With over 100 unique combinations of leather hide available, the release breathes new life Wegner’s iconic Shell Chair, shown here.
