Centipede Collection by Héctor Esrawe for Pirwi
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
Esrawe Studio developed a collection of benches made of birch plywood with a walnut finish. The concept of the benches was aimed at creating a sense of movement and lightness: a multiplicity of legs, making it difficult to see which ones are sup‑ porting the piece, give these chairs the lightness and movement of a walking object. The series of three seats designed by Héctor Esrawe for Pirwi explore visual lightness through saturation and an apparently contradictory yet highly effective strategy by giving the idea of a resis‑tant surface that undulates in order to adapt to a changing floor or a sideways movement.
