The Bicorn Chair was the result of an exciting and challenging collaboration with Isay Weinfeld, who invited us to create designs for a landmark dining space in New York City. The chairs had rigorous criteria – they needed to be suitable for outdoor use, they needed to be stackable, and they also needed to be in one of our distinctive, beautiful materials. For the chair and companion café table, we chose carved solid Iroko wood and bronzed stainless steel. This chair is pure BassamFellows: light, with fully integrated elements. The arms are wholly cantilevered and appear to float unsupported, while the metal frame forms a back loop that can be used as a handle to assist with moving. The backrest and seat are both solid carved wood. There is also an indoor version with a padded, upholstered seat. The matching table uses the same materials as the chairs, with four continuous bent tubes that create the feet for the design, converging into a quad column. The name for the chair seemed so obvious to us – when we looked at the finished shape, we immediately saw Napoleon’s iconic maritime millinery.
