The Velo Chair Pushes Wood To Its Physical Limits

Taking inspiration from the shape of modern bicycles.

By //Design

British designer Jan Waterston‘s Velo Chair is a dynamic piece of furniture inspired by the shape of modern bicycles. Waterston is quoted as saying, “The bicycle is an object in which the user can feel a seamless relationship to and subsequently the road. This relationship between body and object is echoed in bicycle design with tubes flowing seamlessly into one another, constantly changing shape, to improve function and aesthetic.” The chair reflects this inspiration by using a single bent piece of wood to form the entire backrest, testing the material’s physical limits. With its eye-catching form and structure, this piece of furniture would be a great addition to any discerning homeowner’s collection.
