The “Garden Egg Chair” turns 50
by Anna Moldenhauer | 12/3/2017
The Adam Brussels Design Museum in Brussels hosts the world’s first solo show on the work of Peter Ghyczy.
A delicate way of creating an infinitely strong frame, Peter Ghyczy
designed the Biri Series around cubic-based construction. Named after
the strong and constant figure in Peter Ghyczy’s formative years, Nanny
Biri, each design is hard working in purpose yet graceful in finish.
Built upon the idea of never-ending lines and geometric forms this
series is all about refined simplicity.
A conversation piece. Our Biri Cabinet C03 in a Limited version, named ‘New Perspective’. Created by 476 tiles in 2mm solid natural brass. Each tile is hand polished, brushed or patinated in our atelier. The cabinet is made of solid oak made from 150 year old trees and dried for 3 years outside for a natural drying process. The inside of the cabinet is lacquered in a beautiful turquoise, resembling the Norwegian Sea. The outside of the cabinet is stained in White Wash. The Biri frame is made from Finnish stainless steel mirror-polished by hand. Only 3 pieces will be made.
