Pyramid chair by Alex Cummins.
The idea behind the Pyramid chair was to push a common form but in a different light. The chair is a celebration of the basic geometric form of a pyramid. The chair challenges many of the current trends in commercial furniture through its form; the hard geometric shape of the triangular base pyramid offers a unique shape that wouldn’t normally be associated with a chair. The hard geometric shape is offset with a smooth curved seat cut into the form. The form of the chair is intended to complement the triangular forms that are being used more andmore in modern architecture.
