Adding to its progressive, elegant furniture, Cape Town-based interior design studio, OKHA, has now introduced its
TORO Dining Chair.
Named after the Spanish word for bull, the chair is inspired by the majestic yet powerful animal. The defining stance of the chair is robust and firmly rooted like the bull with sculpted arms that symbolize the bull’s horns. Carbon stained ash provides the physical and rigorous construction which references the glossy black hide of the animal.
Made-to-order, the TORO Dining Chair features straight leg or A-frame options with a choice of fabric or rattan backrest.
“I like to think that the chair has a powerful physical presence, like the bull it is loaded…charged with an assured power,” says OKHA Creative Director, Adam Court. Going into detail, Court explains that he is “A fan of Brazilian Modernism, of Jeanneret and Prouve and the A-frame structure of the legs are a direct homage to this…the chair is some-what of an ego manifestation, I usually design objects with a brief, persona or project in mind, with this chair I decided to create something that represents aspects of my character both physically and physiologically…so it’s quite self-indulgent really, meditatively narcissistic.”
