Rey selection by Bruno Rey for Dietiker, in collaboration with HAY
When I very first listened to news of this collaboration, my initially believed was – I want this chair in my lifetime. I just adore the tactile curved form of the back. Very first created by Bruno Rey for Dietiker in 1971, this retro chair has been put back into distribution by Danish brand HAY and I’m guaranteed it’s heading to be popular.
Swiss designer Rey was recognised for his adore of natural varieties and was reported to be influenced by the Thonet bentwood chair when he began experimenting with wooden. For the Rey chair, he produced a self-supporting spherical seat that attaches to the legs by using an modern, screw-fewer, wooden-to-metal link. This was in the beginning handmade using sand casting but by the late Eighties, aluminium stress die casting intended that the full procedure could be performed by machine and the chair could be mass made.
For the replica, HAY have adjusted the seat top a little to suit up to date specifications, and introduced a collection of bold new colors (I particularly like the comfortable environmentally friendly). The collection also incorporates a stackable stool, a bar stool, a spherical coffee desk and dining desk.
