Furniture Design Leaf Chair by B. David Levine A synthesis of the human form with an autumn leaf, the Leaf Chair supports itself with a minimal steel frame. The boldly hued underside further sets the seat apart from its supports. To create the expression of the leaf, a fiberglass shell was employed to minimize the seat‘s thickness. Steel was chosen for the supports to gently catch the leaf, while allowing the overall form to retain a lightness. By echoing the human form, the seemingly delicate chair maintains maximum support and comfort.
