The Fauteuil Chair by Aldo Bakker proves that the Dutch designer has a way with furniture. His highly original work is attentive to both form and function. Materials are used to full advantage without being artificial or shallow.

Bakker's Fauteuil chair, with its seductive, interlocking curves and clean, artistic lines, seems to celebrate the sensual shape of the letter 'S'. It almost hisses, "Ssssit."

Implications - The rapid advancement of computer numerical control machines and laser cutting machines has enabled furniture designers to abandon hard angles in their creations in favor of curvilinear pieces that evoke letters, organic shapes and, as this example proves, even living creatures such as snakes.
