The Spike Chair by Alexander Lervik features a slanted stick construction that stands like a sharp bed of nails. The designer's dynamic seater is made from numerous wood rod elements that are joined in a marriage of both aesthetics and comfort.

Reminiscent of cigarettes, Lervik's cylindrical rod elements are painted beige and white as they stand to form this modern furniture piece. Taking inspiration from falling rain, the designer recreates the slanted strokes of water hitting the ground and presents furniture buffs with his bold vision of the 'Spike Chair'.

Though sculptural and visually intriguing, this chair never loses its sense of purpose and features a practical design that is meant to be durable, safe and comfortable for its users.
