On the occasion of this year’s edition of Vienna Design Week which took place earlier in autumn (28.09 – 07.10.2012), Eindhoven-based design duo Daphna Laurens have been commissioned by the Austrian upholstered furniture specialist Wittmann Company to ‘exchange design ideas and produce a tangible outcome, be it a product or installation.’ Following this brief, the studio have realised this striking and decidedly tangible, two-piece seating collection which was presented at the Passionwege exhibition.

The bold-yet-understated ‘Stool 01′ and ‘Chair 01′ pieces are composed of a tubular-steel base and a contrasting, leather- or textile-upholstered seat, and in the case of the stool, a simple oak wood support.
