These Cushion Chairs Present the Illusion of Quilted Pillows

The terms "deceptive" and "delightful" seldom go together, yet the pair of descriptive words seems to perfectly suit these Cushion Chairs. Unlike most wireframe furnishings, which rarely attempt to be something they aren't, these petite perches do strive to express a sense of comfort that one would not expect from latticed metal.

The structure of these seats is somewhat typical of their type, forming a woven framework of diamonds from the steel to produce a pair of supportive surfaces for the sitter's bottom and back. But instead of allowing the pattern to express itself industrially with rigid lines, Igor Solovyov and Maria Solovyova have distorted the wire of their Cushion Chairs. The result has created the pillow-like bulges and buttons of quilted upholstery.
