Nature truly is the best model within the field of design, and it's what makes products like this sculptural leaf chair so inherently beautiful. Of course, the talent of Ol’ha Shevchenko cannot be denied, as the creator of some remarkably exquisite modern furnishings.

Like a few of this designer's other pieces, this Maple Leaf Chair has a lattice-like structure that looks almost skeletal. Even though the plastic is white, the seat comes to resemble the veiny anatomy of autumn foliage, curling up due to dehydration and cool weather. The consequent curving shape acts as a comfortable seat, embracing the sitter quite naturally. This sculptural leaf chair is a great example how contemporary design can keep a connection to the raw and organic, especially through the use of environmentally friendly materials like recyclable polypropylene.
