Navigating southwards from Sweden to the capital of France, we found our second lighting partner by the name of AREL. This brand started out as a wedding gift from a brother to a sister who was a designer absolutely enchanted by the magic of lighting. AREL finds itself at the crossroads of innovation and elegance, specialising in LED lighting taking the industry’s reputation away from traditionally low value to high-end, spectacular and individually brilliant pieces of functional art. The company prides itself on making the final product appear simple while never having simplicity in its modus operandi.
Daisy designed to accommodate dinners and social gatherings around a dining table. The chair consists of five layers of high quality 3D veneer which can be plied into any direction and shape; adjusting and allowing for the posture of the person sitting on it. This level of support makes you feel like you are floating in the soft petals of a giant flower, hence the name ‘Daisy’ (Marguerite). Daisy received the iF gold award in Germany because she pushes forward the boundaries of 3D veneer technology.
The 3D form pressed seat has a monocoque structure and it is sturdy enough to carry the tremendous pair of wooden legs. In one version of this seat, we have pressed natural leather onto the inner side.
