The combination of pure yet intricate geometric forms is Lara Bohinc’s signature style and with these pieces also expresses the simplicity of Bauhaus design.
The chairs are pure and functional, stripped of all ornamentation, down to the elemental steel rods and cushions. The aim is clarity in form, but the pieces remain striking, dramatic and full of flair. The design incorporates straight lines, circles and squares, which unite to provide structural function to the seat.
The pieces are tailored to utilise modern industrial techniques, including laser cutting and welding.
“I continue to be influenced by pure geometry and the production led design of the Bauhaus”, says Lara Bohinc. “I work frequently with metal, exploring its versatility and sustainability - a reference to Marianne Brandt’s way of using the smallest numbers of materials to better celebrate their properties.”
