by Peter Maly
In the case of this armchair, Peter Maly has chosen to oppose the circular shape of the back, which is feminine, welcoming and comfortable, with the rigour of the squared-off solid wood legs and their promise of solidity and stability. In a clever game of counterpoint, the woven webbing of the rounded back sketches out a pattern of small interconnected squares whilst the structure of the solid wood base follows the curve of the back. Finally, the geometric rigour of the seat’s construction is in opposition to the unstructured freedom offered by the feather-filled back cushions, which can be arranged and used as desired to optimise the comfort on offer.
