Vincent Sheppard takes a modern spin to a classic look from the fifties, and here are the results.
22 June, 2011
With Curly and Cruz, Vincent Sheppard has taken a fifties-inspired look and made it hip, playful and fresh.
The Belgium home furnishings manufacturer, a name that is synonymous with finely crafted Lloyd Loom furniture for both indoors and out, was looking to experiment with a different approach in designing Curly and Cruz.
Keeping to their core material, rattan, and held together by spun paper, the designs are given a modern touch with stainless steel frames (for indoor use) and aluminium frames (for outdoor use).
The chairs made their debut at Maison et Objet in Paris this year, and have since exhibited in multiple design shows, capturing much attention from design watchers along the way.
With new designs such as Curly and Cruz, Vincent Sheppard shows that it is constantly evolving and innovating whilst keeping true to tradition and knowledge passed down through the years.
