Description

The Lyre Chair, handmade in bamboo, is a perfect balance of craftsmanship and design. The result of multiple sessions and mockups with an established local bamboo artisan, “Lyre” is an attractive, ergonomic chair, whose overall dimensions and parametric curvature, coupled with the natural bounce of the material, perfectly adjusts to the body. By linking multiple “Lyre Chairs”, a circular bench is formed.

Bamboo is a natural, lightweight, ecological material, readily available in large quantities and requiring little maintenance. Simultaneously flexible and resilient, with superior bending strength, bamboo can perform seemingly impossible feats of engineering, while maintaining its structural integrity. Furthermore, with the right design, it can easily transition from a casual outdoor to a more formal indoor setting.

The power of a handcrafted object, made with a natural material, lies in its details: the uniqueness of each chair, its basket-like woven corners, the functional yet poetic interplay of bamboo cane sizes, how it ‘breathes’ when used.

About the designer


AKA architects

AKA is a multidisciplinary design studio present in Athens, Greece and Oxford, UK, that works across the fields of architecture, interior, exhibition and furniture design. Our furniture and objects, whether created as an experiment or with a particular project or patron in mind, generate narratives formally and functionally.  Intrigued by the ability of antique furniture to become vessels of history by interpreting specific, often outdated uses, we seek to create objects that mirror a modern lifestyle, but are simultaneously timeless due to their sculptural, enigmatic geometry. Our designs revel in the repetition of elements, the layering of precious and common materials, and the juxtaposition of textures.  The forms are folded, twisted, and stretched, and are characterized by elegant detailing and vibrant splashes of rich color. Captivated by the countless variations of shapes and materials, we are in a constant mode of experimentation.  Each piece is handcrafted by Greek artisans with handpicked materials.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
