We usually have a reason behind each post we publish here on the 2Modern blog, pertaining to putting forth some example of a modern design idea we really like. We could probably scrape together some reason like that to tell you why we’re publishing this post, or we could just ‘fess up: we think these are some darn sexy furniture pieces. And they’re new to 2Modern!
Designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and manufactured by Magis, these chairs mix two very different materials in a way we’ve never seen before. Steel — hard, sturdy and shiny — is forced to work hand in hand with wood — flexible, warm and natural — and together they’ve got to not only hold someone or something up, they’ve got to look good. Those Bouroullec brothers sure have done it again. For a good time, check out the Steelwood Table Round, Steelwood Table Square 36×36, Steelwood Stool Set Of 2 and the Steelwood Chair.
The way these pieces act as one, it’s no wonder the B-bros named their collection “Steelwood” — all one word. What do you think?
