At this year’s ASEAN Singapore furniture fair, Philippino designers Jude Tiotuico and Eric Paras launched their wing chairs made of iron for Industria Home.

Their furniture design, which incorporates wrought iron into their pieces, brings fantasy to forms and function.

The furniture ranges from chairs to tables to lighting to coat racks. Each piece is crafted with romanticised steel, woven together to create a romanticised look.

 

The elegant and beautifully woven together makes the chairs look light and delicate.

The eclectic mix of styles allows the pieces to be incorporated into a range of interiors.

Combined with smooth finishings, wood and upholstery the furniture can be adapted to classic styles.

Rather than having an industrial feel or a traditional structure these designs reinterpret contemporary and classic designs giving them a new texture.
