Mike Kann I

'In praise of shadows' by London based designer Mike Kann constructed of laminated Malaysian ply. This is a collection of three pieces inspired by iconic chairs from different eras; a Louis XVI Medallion chair, Thonet’s Model 14 Bentwood chair and Jacobsen’s Ant chair. These pieces are extruded silhouettes creating a simplified form making the familiar forms of these classic pieces of furniture into something new, yet strangely familiar.
