If the Alexey Chair was a musical instrument, what noise would it make? Assembled with wire strings, machine heads and a gently curving spine, this bar stool might presumably emit a sound that resembles a guitar.

There's a timeless beauty that many classical strings embody, found in the way that their exquisite forms produce the most magnificent notes. Consistent with this aesthetic, this graceful piece of furniture by Annis Lender may take on an ageless appearance that will remain stylish for generations to come.

It is an interesting concept to consider, since often it's the details of a design that go in and out of fashion. The Alexey Chair comprises an elegant curling and undulating backrest against a rigid metal frame. The sculptural interplay of stiff and sinuous may always be central in art.
