Nest Chair by Nina Bruun

May 31st, 2011 by retail design blog

Influenced by the spring and of nature, this chair is inspired by a bird’s nest. My idea was to create a graphical chaos which still felt like a unified whole. The chair’s supporting structure consists of a bottom, seat and four stabilizing legs. To create a “nest feeling” I played with birch strips in different thicknesses and hurled them around the supporting structure. In order not to divert attention from the nest of birch strips, I have chosen to make a very anonymous upholstered cushion in a dusty chocolate brown which plays beautifully with the pale birch. It was natural for me that the chair had a soft center to create references to the bird’s nest, that are typically lined with down, to form a confident frame for eggs and chicks.
