How many times have we had to decide between two total opposite things that we like? Should I choose this? Should I choose that? We go round and round on which thing would makes us look better or would go better with our room. We even make a list of pros and cons on each of the options and sometimes we talk to our friends to see what they would choose knowing that it does not matter what they say because we would be the ones with the last word.
The story of these chairs was born when I came up to my client with some initial sketches and asked him if he wanted to proceed with a strong, heavy-looking chair design or if he wanted a more organic and elegant chair design. After thinking for a few minutes and looking at me puzzled he said: "I want both." Probably after his answer my face looked more puzzled than his: "How do you mix and match two completely opposite shapes?" my mind said immediately.
This was my solution.
