We've been fans of Laurie Beckerman's playful contemporary renditions on high modern furniture design for a few years now, since we saw her apostrophe-shaped "Tete-à-Tete" rocker. The Brooklyn-based designer has a knack for expressing geometric principles in compelling final product, and her latest piece, the "Butterfly Chair," is no exception.
The Butterfly Chair is inspired by the ethereal beauty of lucite. The sheer form of a butterfly is created with simplicity and harmony of proportion. The wings organically grow out of the circular seat, giving the appearance of a chair about to take flight.
I'm also getting a funky, abstracted Pac-man vibe from the bisected spheroid.
