Rey assortment by Bruno Rey for Dietiker, in collaboration with HAY
When I initially listened to information of this collaboration, my first believed was – I need this chair in my life. I just really like the tactile curved shape of the back. 1st created by Bruno Rey for Dietiker in 1971, this retro chair has been place back again into distribution by Danish brand HAY and I’m sure it’s going to be popular.
Swiss designer Rey was acknowledged for his adore of organic sorts and was mentioned to be motivated by the Thonet bentwood chair when he began experimenting with wooden. For the Rey chair, he established a self-supporting round seat that attaches to the legs by way of an progressive, screw-a lot less, wooden-to-steel connection. This was initially handmade utilizing sand casting but by the late Eighties, aluminium force die casting meant that the complete system could be completed by machine and the chair could be mass generated.
For the reproduction, HAY have modified the seat height slightly to go well with up to date requirements, and launched a series of daring new colors (I specifically like the delicate eco-friendly). The assortment also incorporates a stackable stool, a bar stool, a round coffee desk and eating desk.
