Awesome asymmetric chairs by Tomás Alonso (top) and Philippe Starck (bottom). Their interesting aesthetic is captured using contrasting materials that challenge the user’s perception of balance and stability.

Alonso’s designs were fabricated from a single metal tube and ash wood, cleverly using the frame to create a strong chair from minimal material. The collection was produced for the One Part Chef Four Parts Design exhibition in 2009.

Starck’s iconic Dr Glob chair for Kartell explores rigidity of structure whilst playing with contrast. The dynamic of the two materials together is unusual, but has resulted in the stackable, recognisable design. An interesting exploration of material and form executed in two very different ways.
