London Papardelle

Ron Arad British

Not on view

Architect and designer Ron Arad is best known for his inventive furniture that incorporates industrial materials into a language of volume and sinuous line. He has designed much of his furniture using metal, a material attractive to him for its surface, strength, malleability, and minimalist spirit. In contrast to the prevailing Modernist style, which embraced machine-made furnishings, all of Arad's early furniture was handmade to purposely avoid the effects of machine tooling. By 1992 he had introduced woven steel wire to his designs, which allowed him to create undulating forms that were even more fluid. The London Papardelle chair is one of these works.
