This beautiful Relax House replica Steelwood chair, seen here in black painted steel and solid beech wood, will be the perfect addition to your design space. The original Steelwood chair was designed by the Bouroullec brothers, noted French designers. Our high quality reproduction marries the same ideas of conventional materials used in unconventional ways. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, French born brother design collaborators, created the Steelwood chair, an unconventional pairing of two very conventional materials: steel and wood. This modern chair for durable enough for everyday use but easy on the eyes with its pleasing form.
Designed by the progressive minds of the Bouroullec brothers, the Steelwood chair was intended to attain an ornamental patina over years of use and preserve the illusion of timeworn delicacy in a way that simply is not possible with a plastic chair. Four straight legs and a round seat are milled out of solid beech and attached to painted steel.
This is a chair likely to last for decades and look even better as it ages. “I think it’s nice to have this kind of material,” Bouroullec said, “it’s not made out of plastic. It will age well—even if the paint chips, broken paint on metal can actually look quite nice. We really like this chair, because it’s kind of stable and democratic.”
At Relax House, we bring you a high quality, affordable replica of this esteemed Bouroullec chair. Like the original, our chair is constructed from solid beech wood and painted steel. The steel is bended to form the curve of the chair’s back and arm rests and the beech wood forms the seat and legs making this chair unusual in the way it uses these conventional materials. Unlike most of its plastic counterparts, our replica Steel wood chair is designed to become better over time, acquiring a patina through years of use. The silhouette of our replica Steelwood chair makes it decidedly adaptable to any place, from a café terrace to an inviting dinner table.
