The two Ws in the Armchair’s name stand for Windsor and Wire, which allude to its form and materials. It’s a hybrid piece, which gives a contemporary twist to a traditional design language.
The legs and seat are inspired by the classic lines of a Windsor Armchair, with the surface of the seat slightly carved for comfort. Shafts of 6mm powder coating metal wire extend upwards from below the seat. They fan slightly outwards from their point of origin before meeting the wooden backrest. This gives the Armchair a sculptural quality and sense of lightness. The playful juxtaposition of materials is typical of its designer, Alejandro Villarreal.
