Silhouette Chair

Estimated Production Time1-2 weeks

About

Winner of Design et al International Product Design Awards 2015. Organic and functional, the Silhouette chair is strikingly crafted from a single copper panel which has been hand rolled and hammered. This age-old technique used by coachbuilders in the restoration and customisation of Classic cars enables the craftsman to form compound curves from a flat sheet. The engineered sheet of copper is then clad on one face with neoprene and finished with a luxuriously soft aniline leather, which is seamlessly wrapped around the rolled edge ensuring the fluid lines of the chair’s Silhouette continue. The front legs of the hand-shaped walnut frame flow up into the arms of the chair before sweeping around the back of the copper panel. Meanwhile subtle engineered fixings allow the copper panel to visually hover over the frame. The result is an exquisite piece of furniture; functional in its form and elegant in design. Reminiscent of Hans Wegner, Linley have stripped the traditional chair of its outer style and allowed its pure construction to shine. Combining age-old techniques with innovative materials, the Silhouette Chair exudes sophistication and comfort.
