Hard Lines
February 1, 2010

In addition to my love of architecture, furniture design has always been an inspiration for what I do. I don’t know if it's just me, but I’ve always compared a chair to a person’s silhouette. The legs, arms, and torso all resemble certain characteristics that cross between each other. On the other hand, you can completely change that mentality by adding a few lines that can blur the difference between the two.

Serbian architect Ivo Otasevic has designed a chair that exemplifies this meaning in something that looks like the letter “a” (Front view)

A great example of Form and Function (back view).

And something that doubles as an art piece in your home. I’m drawn to geometric hard lines (side view)
