The things reference the utilitarian approach towards furnishings style developed by members of the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing – commonly recognized as Shakers – during the 19th century in America.

“The Shaker Series was inspired by a distinctive pedagogical idea of the Shakers movement with the guiding principle of creating simple, truthful furnishings pieces,” stated the designers.

Neri&ampHu has reinterpreted the conventional ladder-back chair, which attributes horizontal struts bracing the vertical supports.

Available in walnut or oak, the structure rests on angled supports that lead to it to lean backward slightly. The chair is created to match a wooden table with a stone surface inlaid into the best.

“The Shaker Series celebrates the most basic and mundane tectonic top quality of a wooden chair and a wooden table with a stone top,” Neri&ampHu mentioned.

The designers also debuted the Frame collection, which comprises a bed and a sofa system supported by a structure in walnut or oak.

“The Frame Collection is lifted from the ground and supported by a clear wooden frame structure that can be seen as both utilitarian and sculptural,” stated a statement from Neri&ampHu.”The wooden structure is also a frame onto which various accessories, be it a tray or a light, can be clipped or hung.”

De La Espada launched the items at Paris trade fair Maison&ampObjet final week, alongside Luca Nichetto’s most current furniture collection for the company.
