Japanese aesthetic & Scandinavian design in one leather chair
CARSTEN BECK's paintings can be referred to as the boil down of the Scandinavian minimalist expression translated into oil on canvas.
And when his work matches that of the major names in furniture design, the result is a beautiful home with a fantastic personality.
His works are a combination of geometrical views of forms and shapes, with attention to detail and high-quality materials — and so are the chairs that accompany his arts at homes around the world, which will make you feel warm & comfy.
We've spotted some carefully chosen pieces transformed into gorgeous spaces here.
One example of many is the Leather Samurai Chair which, paired with the CARSTEN x NORDIC KNOTS rug, gives away a mixed feeling of contemporary minimalist and classic designs.
The Samurai is a modern lounge chair, made from high-quality saddle leather, was influenced by Japanese simplicity and combined with the Danish stick chairs of the 1950s. The saddle leather from Sorensen Leathers or premium-quality re-enforced canvas wraps the chair like armor and carries the body with ease. The seat is mounted with brass rivets in order to achieve maximum strength, whilst the back is mounted with flexible leather straps and brass buckles. Both the leather and canvas are handmade in Denmark in a proud Danish furniture tradition.
In other chair talks, more than one ambient counted on both Carsten 's design and the Barcelona Chair — which is almost a piece of art itself, being considered a contemporary throne — to suit the spaces exactly. Increased and sturdy quality, luxurious black leather also adds a touch of elegance to the room.
"The idea behind my work is an expression of the organic forms and shapes. My background in printmaking and photography gives me the options to see a new perspective in art. The simple lines that create a new object fascinate me, and force me to think art in a new way through the simple lines." — Carsten Beck.
Emerging designers are trampling the boundaries between furniture and fine art and we're all here for it. WBY?
