Ahead of his impending New Balance 2002 collaboration, Versace VP of Sneakers and Men’s Footwear Salehe Bembury has teamed with New Balance and Modernica for a special Eiffel Side Shell Chair. Boasting a unique pattern inspired by the details on the aforementioned 2002 and serving up a vivid color scheme, the dynamic chair brings Bembury’s unique eye for sneaker design into the world of furniture.

Made of glossy fiberglass, the chair uses a crackled light blue shade for its base tone, then quickly equips the front half with a veritable plethora of squiggled purple detailing for a nod to the pattern seen on Bembury’s collaborative New Balance 2002. The rear is devoid of these playful lines, instead opting for a Bembury/NB hit in its center. Polished black metal legs round off the look.

The Salehe Bembury x New Balance x Modernica Eiffel Side Shell Chair is limited to a scarce five units. Its retail price and release date have yet to be announced.

Apart from the New Balance collaboration — which was recently debuted by none other than John Mayer — and his day job at Versace, Bembury has also been hard at work designing original silhouettes for ANTA, ranging from a boot-like high top to a sturdy hiking shoe.
