The Peaches Collection Explores the Female Body + Its Curves
Having made its debut in an abandoned nunnery in Alcova for Milan Design Week, Bohinc Studio’s Peaches seating collection presented a curvaceous display. It’s inspired by the female body and all of the beautiful curves that some shapes include. “The female form has always been a source of inspiration in art, photography, and design, but often with an unrealistic eye or as a response to society’s perception of how the female body ’should’ look. I wanted the Peaches collection to be a pure and unabashed celebration of femininity and the female form, celebrating every curvy, voluptuous, and fleshy detail,” says Lara Bohinc.
Peaches includes three pieces: the Big Girl armchair, the Derrière armchair, and the Peachy pouffe. The flesh-like folds found in each design are reminiscent of bosoms and bottoms, and they’re handmade in a North London upholstery workshop. Wood and steel are used to create the frame of the pieces, then a foam layer creates the smooth curves and comfort for the user. Afterwards, they’re covered in wool upholstery that adds softness and texture.
“Although my previous work has always had a feminine touch, my pieces have often featured more geometric qualities. The Peachy collection is my most curvaceous to date, reminiscent of all the gorgeous shapes of a woman’s body and with no straight lines or sharp angles in sight,” Bohinc said.
