Nest Chair by Nina Bruun

A while back we featured the Fold Chair by Nina Bruun, and she’s emailed us her newest creation, the Nest Chair, which was inspired by the coming season and nature, and (obviously) a bird’s nest. I think she’s one to watch over the next few years.

From the designer:

My idea was to create a graphical chaos which still felt like a unified whole.

The chair’s supporting structure consists of a bottom, seat and four stabilizing legs. To create a “nest feeling” I played with birch strips in different thicknesses and hurled them around the supporting structure. In order not to divert attention from the nest of birch strips, I have chosen to make a very anonymous upholstered cushion in a dusty chocolate brown which plays beautifully with the pale birch. It was natural for me that the chair had a soft center to create references to the bird’s nest, that are typically lined with down, to form a confident frame for eggs and chicks.
