London based designer Bodo Sperlein has introduced the Contour table and chair at the
2009 London Design Festival.

From the designer:
The Contour table and chair are part of a capsule furniture collection which continues his signature style of sensual and curvaceous forms – this time however working on a larger scale. The final shapes strongly reflect the design process, based around folding flexible and malleable materials such as paper, to create a series of dynamic curves and forms.

The chair exudes a simple elegance, and has been designed to look like a single sculpted sheet. A ribbon-like profile draws the eye effortlessly around a series of loops terminating in slender legs that conceal their true strength. The lines of a traditional table have been elongated, and embellished with curves. Concaved sections play on negative space, and give the table a ‘lightness’ that contrasts with the weight and solidity of the hardwood from which it is made.
