duet chair with timber seat 753
Duet is named for the two flowing lines of timber that form the overall shape of the chair. Originally created as a variation on the classic Thonet bent-wood tradition, the Duet Chair is actually made from a series of carved wood components, revealing a stunning composition of grain patterns. Once carved, each component is joined with mortise and tenon for a seamless, stable frame. Designed by neri&hu and manufactured by De La Espada for the neri&hu brand.
