Arik Ben Simhon The latest furniture collection is an Israeli designer inspired by sports equipment and elements in the gym. We’re not talking about a coffee table with barbell lights, puff chairs with sport jerseys or skate decks. These are modern, high quality, sophisticated leather and upholstered pieces. They take design cues from the protective pads worn in sports such as hockey and skateboarding, and metal tubular elements of the work machines.
The materials include full grain fashionable leather in monochrome and metallic shades, with colors flashing with ultra-gloss sequential seats and glossy velvet chairs. With a blink for Chesterfield flooring techniques, most of the pieces are sewn and hand-filled, a sense of humor often found behind these designs.
