2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition
Studio La Cube
The Simmis Chair plays with its symmetry from different perspectives. There is symmetry between the wood parts, highlighted by a central incision, which is the key element of the chair’s aesthetics. This incision provides lightness, balance, and visual delicacy, which are counteracted by the strength of the material and the cubic form of the lower part. There is also a second symmetry which corresponds to the inclination of the lower cube and the back of the chair – the profiles of these two elements make a symmetric figure between the higher and the lower parts.
