The Contour Table and Chair by Bodo Sperlein

Innovation often means something that already exists and giving it either a new use or adapting it in some way. It’s all about thinking original and about being able to take something simple and transform it into something complex. Inspiration for a design can come from anywhere and it can be anything, no matter how simple. For the Contour collection, inspiration came from something as simple as the beauty of a curved line.

The collection includes a table and a chair and it was designed by Bodo Sperlein. Both pieces are made of hardwood. They are solid and durable but they also have a very delicate design. This contrast is very interesting and it makes the table and the chair stand out in a very simple and unique way.

Notice the delicacy of the lines and the beautiful silhouettes of these pieces. The name of this series is very well chosen as it expresses perfectly the essence of the designs.

The Contour table was designed as a single sheet of wood that undulates and feature soft curves and simple lines. The chair is also extremely simple and chic. The shapes are still the same simple ones but they have this delicate and modern twist that makes them stand out and gives them style and a sophisticated look.
