Top-heavy chairs by Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune were currently on show at Milan’s Salone del Mobile.
Inspired by the block colours and simple shapes found in the work of American minimalist artist Ellsworth Kelly, Claesson Koivisto Rune has upholstered the pair of padded Kelly chairs in vivid tones.
The rounded seat and back of the first chair appear to be formed from one section that is pinched at the place where they join.
A giant square back with rounded corners and a rectangular seat of the same width make up the larger chair.
Designed for Italian furniture brand Tacchini, both models have thin metal legs and bracing that look like they rest lightly against each other.
The legs of the bigger chair are stabilised with two crossed rods at the back, while the smaller seat has a single bar that spans beneath the seat to join the secondary struts on each side.
