A beautiful piece of furniture can complete a room. It can be the final piece that makes a space come full circle, building a comfortable and cohesive haven, rather than a random area. Furniture pieces make or break a home, they add to the essence or soul of a home, hence one needs to be extremely picky while choosing a furniture design. The design should be a reflection of you, and what you want your home to be. When you place a piece of furniture in a room, it should instantly integrate with the space, creating a wholesome and organic environment. And, there’s something about a simple, minimalist, and well-done furniture design that completely wins my heart – for example, the Grid Chair by SUNRIU Design
Designed by SUNRIU Design, the Grid Chair is a simple well-designed chair with a few thoughtful details that truly set it apart. SUNRIU Design made a few changes to an ordinary wooden chair by incorporating certain flat elements. The idea behind the Grid Chair was to tackle the issue of accidentally knocking over your coffee, or a glass of water while sitting on a chair or couch. The Grid Chair is made up of four planks of wood arranged in an interesting grid-like manner. The various lines of the chair stagger together to create a neat grid that creates extended flat surfaces on either side of the chair.
These extended surfaces are quite useful since you can place your cup of coffee, magazine, book, or other knick-knacks on them. By making such a simple tweak to the conventional chair, the design studio hoped to eliminate a major problem for users and attempted to showcase how design challenges can be resolved through simple measures, materials, ad construction methods.
The grid-like form of the chair, and the extended sides give the furniture piece a rustic and raw charm, allowing it to truly shine without any additional bells and tassels. The Grid Chair by SUNRIU Design is a furniture piece that radiates simplicity and minimalism but also serves as a modern solution for a modern problem.
