Damian Willamson Has an Unconventional Inspiration for His Ovo Chair

Despite the amazingly unconventional inspiration for this elegant chair silhouette, Damian Williamson's final product is decisively sleek, refined and a perfect addition to the modern interior setting. The British creative eagerly develops the seating furniture concept for Danish brand Erik Jørgensen.

Damian Williamson takes cues from Italian cuisine for his contemporary piece. Firstly, the sizable backrest and the side panels of the Ovo chair mimic the designer's unconventional inspiration — draped fresh pasta. In addition, the furniture piece's name "is derived from the Italian word 'Uovo,' [which] means egg."

The soft curves of the Ovo chair instill a certain fluidity in the silhouette of the object. As a result, the furniture can be integrated into a luxe space, where its white exterior and leathery upholstery can place a strong emphasis.
