Experimenta One and Two Chairs
Brussels designer Alain Gilles recently presented his new chair the Experimenta One&Two for the Les Petits Riens/Spullenhulp, the non-profit organization.
Discover the rustic casual chairs presented by Belgian designer Alain Gilles, which are the part of the bigger project, Second Hand, Second Life. This project gives a new life for the thrown away objects with a help of thirty renowned designers.
The chairs were renovated from the rattan and metal chair, and a unique fabric to cover it. The achieved image is creating controversial impression, because it is both rustic and stylish. It is incredible how the chair is a conversation between the old and new techniques, looks and aspirations.
From Alain Gilles on the description of the chair:
The “Experimenta One & Two” armchair are the result of a discussion between the old and the new, between the original “vintage” piece and its reclaimed modern transformation. The past, the original 1960’s rattan seat, has become the structural foundation for the new reclaimed one. Its origins are not at all hidden, just whitened and in a way blurred by the 3D woven textile cover.
