Estúdio Ronald Sasson’s sleek Armchair Yori is many things at once. Its seat back is high and rounded in the style of the classic barrel chair, while its prominent, skeletal frame is best viewed from behind, the better to appreciate the slimness of the supporting structure. Most striking is the way the frame’s unique materials – thin steel bands lined with wood laminate – come together to generate striking juxtapositions: industrial-grey steel against tactile natural wood, and clean modernist shapes paired with the sinuous lines characteristic of furnishings from the designer’s native Brazil.
