Lighter feel: Alexander Lervik’s furniture collection

Inspired by Thonet bistro chairs, each piece was molded and manufactured using powder-coated steel.

Swedish designer Alexander Lervik launched a collection of chairs with matching tables and stools for his Dimma collection for Tingest. Inspired by Thonet bistro chairs, which are known for their bentwood and perforated design, the collection was developed by the company by working with a factory in Sweden, where each piece was molded and manufactured using powder-coated steel.

For the stools, Lervik was inspired by bar stools commonly found in British pubs, but gave his designs a lighter feel thanks to perforations that allow light to pass through, breaking up the design.
