Mixing very different materials in design requires an intuitive knack for visual harmony, and the Bloom chair by Paige Vanderkemp is one piece of furniture that manages to make up a remarkably complete seat.
A rich wood with a dark stain makes an abstract composition of straight-angled legs and a softly curved settle, reminiscent of modern movables of the 1970s. The object achieves a true contemporary state with the inclusion of a transparent backrest made to mimic the curves that the timber comes to create. The clear support is of a sturdy acrylic plastic, enhanced with a unique base, where conceptual cuts have been added as detailing. The Bloom chair by Paige Vanderkemp may harken to a popular style, but it's been infused with a fresh idiosyncrasy.
