Lathe Chairs by Sebastian Brajkovic
Sometimes furniture just cannot be named conventional and placed into traditional interior design. This is a story of Lathe Chairs crafted and designed by Sebastian Brajkovic, so let’s check it out!
Unique Chair Designs by Brajkovic
Sebastian Brajkovic is a young talented designer who was born in Amsterdam but has unique background, his father is Croatian-Italian, while his mother is Dutch-Indonesian. Meanwhile, Sebastian Brajkovic has started the Lathe Chairs project back in 2008, while preparing for this final project for the Design Academy Eindhoven. The Lathe chairs released since all share the caught in motion feature, that is so unique to Brajkovic style.
Despite appearing somewhat futuristic, the Lathe chair series started out from the reconstruction of the antique chairs, specifically the XVII and XIX century. Brajkovic managed to recreate a completely new vision of the antique rarity, using wood carving, bronze casting and machine embroidering. Well of course, the print on his chairs was produced through rotating the images on a computer, but the forms sometimes strike as particularly not functional. The chairs, as you see have a very traditional curvy base, but a mind blowing seating design, with a print that is caught in rotation. Sometimes the form of the seating repeats the moving of the print. The approach designed by Sebastian Brajkovic is not simply furniture designing, it is the work of art. Isn’t that fascinating?
This way you see, that the Lathe chairs are a new approach to the furniture designing, where Brajkovic combines the future, recalling the futuristic prints and shapes of the chairs, the past, recalling the historical background of the Lathe chair history and of course the present, where he presents his beautiful works. By the way, Sebastian Brajkovic has participated in many design exhibitions, including Salone del Mobile, Milan, Design Miami/Basel, Basel, Carpenters Workshop Gallery, London. He is also an author of several books, including “How to design a chair”, published in 2010 by Conran Octopus Designmuseum London, United Kingdom.
