Philippe Bestenheider’s desire to push the boundaries of woodwork has resulted in the exquisite Edelweiss collection of chairs, stools, and lounge chairs. Thin plywood is used to create seats that provide ample surface area for maximum comfort while embodying the formal elegance of Swiss design. The arching back of the chair is skillfully gauged to interlock with the seat, resulting in a captivating and dynamic interplay of pressure and tension that evokes the micro-work of architecture. This nod to the Alpine tradition adds a touch of rustic charm to the collection’s contemporary design. The Edelweiss chair comes in two versions: full or perforated backs. The version with holes is even lighter and features graphic signs that showcase the innovative approach of reducing material. This creates a lightweight and agile seat that is ideal for commercial settings.
