Celebrating togetherness through mixed materiality
Ilse Crawford and Oscar Peña of Studioilse created the Betwixt Chair in response to something they struggle to find: an “everywhere” chair that can move between different environments. The designers paired a robust steel frame with wood, upholstery, or composite cork—a material known for its sustainability—to achieve a balance wherever Betwixt is used.
For the celebrated British designer Ilse Crawford and her husband, industrial designer Oscar Peña, the couple’s complementary styles strengthen every collaboration the studio takes on. Together with their London-based team, Crawford and Peña support and enhance people’s lives and behaviors by facilitating human connection and bringing people together through their work.
