FrontRunners: Winging It

  • Laurie Beckerman Wings of Steel chair
<< Back to Robb Report, April 2013

    The latest creation from the New York–based architect turned furniture designer Laurie Beckerman is the Wings of Steel chair (www.lauriebeckerman.com). The $4,500 chair attracts the eye and momentarily confuses it; its form appears to change depending on the angle at which it is viewed. Though the Wings of Steel chair has a light, airy design that suggests it might take flight, its sturdy construction keeps it grounded, making it suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
