Twisted Wire Seating
The Thread Bench by Ola Giertz Rebels Against the Typical Tidiness of Design

If you can get your hands on a Thread Bench by Ola Giertz, you will know that you’ve got a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture. Each creation bears as much in common with the others as the first version did with the sketch model.

The designer feels as though there isn’t enough marvelous mess worked into contemporary objects so he looked to his inner child for a lighthearted, imaginative and chaotic concept. The result is an eccentric seat that that’s been handcrafted from wire and tangled into a haphazard framework with six looped and twisted legs.

Warm and cold forging methods were necessary to manipulate the thick and stiff metal bars. Each Thread Bench by Ola Giertz is sculpted spontaneously with the malleability of the material as the main form-determining factor.
