Cool cool and cool! The chair designed by 10 architectural masters is too cool
Mario Botta “Quarta”, 1984
The chair is simple and complicated -considering material, measurement of mechanics, optimizing the shape … … making a chair is not essentially different from a house. The chair is like a slightly shrinking building, condensing the designer’s thoughts and becoming the perfect carrier of its communication design concept. Therefore, if you want to approach an architect, you may start from a chair. Today, fashion Bazaar art will introduce you to the story of ten architectural masters and their chairs.
Even if you haven’t heard Zaha Hadid, you must have been to Beijing Wangjing SOHO, Shanghai Volida SOHO, or the Guangzhou Grand Theater, and even the Brook Skishi in Austria … These memorable works They are all from the “master of architectural structure”. Zaha boldly uses space and geometric structures to reflect the complicated characteristics of urban buildings, and use “follow” and “flow” to express its rigid style.

The designer’s consistent style is also manifested in his chair. Z-Chair is the crystallization of Zaha’s three years. It seems to be a simple three-dimensional object, but it combines the aesthetics and practicality, and it is simple to hide the unique ingenuity of the designer. Z-Chinese visually gives a strong sense of technology, because it uses polishing stainless steel materials, coupled with the design of the design of the design, the soft geometric lines make the chair a flowing beauty, and the Zaha building has the same workmanship. Wonderful. Whether it is architecture or chair, she always shows a gentle and firm femininity.

Frank Laud Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright
Mentioned Frank Lloyd Wright, you may think of his grassland school, the classic flowing villas on the textbook, the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, and the New York Gugenheim Museum …. .. The architect, known as the “Father of American Architecture”, strives to reflect a sense of naturalness in the design, and creates “grassland -style houses” in the process of continuous trials and attempts.
Frank Laud Wright “Organic”, 1937
In life, Wright is a person who runs aesthetics to every detail, and even the switch of the lights will be designed in person. In 1949, he designed Taliesin West Chair for himself. This chair that looks like origami art is composed of several plates interspersed. The surface is covered with blue sponge cushions. It is concise and elegant and rigorous. It can be called the continuation of Wright architectural language.

Although the hardcore contour created by straight lines is the mainstream in Wright design, his use of round and polygon is also very skilled. Is this office chair designed decades ago, do you still seem to be outdated today?

Langxiang Church, Sagaye Villa, Marseille Apartment … just mention his work casually, everyone will definitely think of this “father of functionalism” -Le Corbusier (Le Corbusier) Essence Corbusier’s design concept is mainly divided into two stages: the previous stage was before the 1950s, mainly functionality and rationality; the latter stage was mainly postmodern and expressionism.
Le Boshang “Colline Notre Dame Du Haut), 1955
Corbusier has designed many seats. Among them, Le Corbusier-LC2 is a artwork in the chair, and even Jobs is its fan. The LC2 inherits the essence of its design concept. The solid metal frame is wrapped in a soft leather chair cushion. The “functional first” and without any meaningless modification can be called the milestone work of modern furniture art.

Antoni Gaudí I Cornet
There are many masters of architecture, different ideas, and their works have their own characteristics. If you want to find the most special, it will probably count Antoni Gaudí I Cornet. His architectural style is neither pure Gothic nor Roman or mixed type, but a “Gaodihua” style that combines many elements such as Eastern Islamic style, modernism, and naturalism.
Antoni Gaudí I Cornet “La Sagrada Familia), 1882
Gaudi once said: “Straight lines belong to humans, and curves belong to God.” So he refused to use straight lines on buildings. Similarly, he also reflected his thinking about architectural modernity when designing a chair. Padouk Armchair is one of the classic works of Gaudi. The smooth curve and elegant shape contain the romantic thinking of the architect.
Antonio Gaudi “Padouk Armchair”, 1904
Casa Calvet armchair breaks the traditional concept, opposes symmetrical forms, and is very skinny. It seems to be going to walk immediately. Heart -shaped back, spine -like support, curved armrest arms, chair legs with protruding knee joints and even cubs, and the corners of the galm -shaped shape, all reveal a anger.

Frank Gehry was the winner of The Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1989. Some people say that his design is meaningless and ugly; others praise him as Picasso in the architectural world. Gali likes to use the visual effects in the pattern, and use the broken geometric graphics to break the design and structure of the traditional building, so the architecture in his pen indicates a unclear social order.
Frank Owen Gehry “The Marqués de Riscal”, 2006, 2006
The architectural works in Gai have irregular shapes and sculpture -like appearances. The designed chairs are also full of curves, but the implementation method is very different. The chair of the corrugated paper series is to reduce the multi -layer cardboard that is adhered to the need for form. Although its material is very low, the bold sculpture lines and the elaborate ripple arrangement behind it make it a practical and beautiful furniture.

From the boxer to the “Clear Water Concrete Poet”, Ando may be the most legendary architectural master. From the long house of Jiji to the “church trilogy”, with the poetic design style, Ando counterattacked.
Tadao Ando “Church of Light”, 1999
“Dream Chair” was designed by Ando specially Denmark’s well -known furniture brand Carl Hansen & Son, which expressed his tribute to Danish architect Hans Wigner. The chair fully combines the simple geometric expression and organic materials, and successfully achieves the challenge to wood. This chair is made of three -dimensional Qu wooden boards. Ando Zhongxiong and craftsmen use the size and curvature of the material to the limit, realizing the personality and characteristics of the designer initially given the seat.
Ando turned his dream chair into reality, encouraging people to pay more time to chase dreams. The chair shows the same harmony and minimalist design as Wigner, and shows the combination of Danish craftsmanship and the traditional design tradition of Japanese design with a strong sense of sculpture.

Thomas Heatherwick is one of the most famous contemporary designers in Britain. Qiaqiao, Shanghai World Expo British Pavilion, Bund Financial Center … countless designs have made Thomas’s name of “design ghost talents”. Its design is always full of all kinds of wonderful thoughts, but it is not a dazzling, cold building, but breaks away from the formalization and structured outerization, breaking the boundary and perfect interpretation of the association of architecture and art.

The chairs designed by Ghost Architects are naturally different. The gyro chair is his masterpiece. Reject the single boring of ordinary seats, sitting on it a few times, it is a long time. Don’t look at this chair that looks “funny”, but it integrates advanced technology and ergonomic concepts, and is made into an innovative design that can rotate and swing symmetrically. This “chair” did not sit in a fixed direction, but sitting on it unexpectedly.
Thomas Alexander Hesvik “Magis Spun Chair”, 2016
Speaking of Japanese architects, in addition to Ando, the second thing people think of is Kengo Kuma. In recent years, his “negative building” theory can be described as a mess in China. It is characterized by integration with natural landscapes. It uses natural building materials such as bamboo, slate, and thatched grass to combine water, light, and air. It can make people feel the warmth and beauty of traditional buildings.

The architectural work is full of control of the chair, who is full of Wind aesthetics and Dongfang Zen, which also reflects his design concept. The GC Chair he designed does not have any exaggerated shapes, but it has been subtracted on the basis of traditional chairs, and it pays attention to function and durability. The ordinary shape brings a peaceful heart. With the same architectural style, the designer emphasizes minimalism and modern aesthetics, and reinterprets traditional Japanese craftsmanship and lifestyle through design.

Maybe you have never heard of Kuhas’s name, but you must know the CCTV building. With realistic architectural philosophy, Kurhaas won the 2000 Plitzker Prize. In addition, he is “the godfather of contemporary architecture”, and has cultivated many outstanding architects, including the “female demon head” Zaha in the architectural industry.
Rem Koolhaas “Radio and Television Center”, 2008
Concrete, leather, and electric devices make Kurhaas’s chairs look different. 01 ARM Chair is a rotary rest seat with a classic route. Kurhaas paid attention to the function, so he installed an electric system for the armrest chair to adjust the height by pressing the button on the column -shaped mechanical base.

Eileen Gray can be described as the greatest female designer in the 20th century. Gray began to get involved in the architectural industry at the age of 50. Although there were not many works, she branded her unique personality. Her design works involved lacquer art, furniture, interior decoration and architectural design, breaking the absolute boundary of the design type.
Eileen Gray “iconic E-1027 House”, 1929
Gray associated the metal, wood and leather, and created the famous Bibi chair series. It named the mascot from the Michelin tire company, the baby Michelin. The shape of the chair seems to be combined with a tire, which is in line with the shape of the baby Michelin. The frame of the chair leg is composed of chrome -plated stainless steel steel pipes on the surface. The two semicircular shapes of the back and handrail are made of leather material and sponge, soft and comfortable. It is not difficult to see that Gray’s work is not only delicate and gentle, but also shows his fortitude and rationality. From today’s perspective, its works are still fashionable.

Regardless of the design of the period, for the architect, each work is a somewhere. The chair happened to be like an experimental place, quickly presenting the design thinking behind the architect. Which of the above ten masters of architecture, which one do you like best?
