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 continuous loop of 4 × 4 cm (T29/4) stainless steel tubing creates the legs for this table. Four cast elements interrupt the loop and are available in a smooth or ribbed surface. The tabletop, available in 15 mm or 24 mm thickness, rests on four cast mounts, available in four different styles.
