Arctic Smoke Chair is a minimalist design created by Texas-based designers Light and Ladder in collaboration with Chiyome. Rooted in an analysis of planar relationships, the design collaboration and its resulting furniture collection is a study of weightlessness. Mirrored peach glass, velvety nubuck and satin metal round out a grouping that renders traditional forms through a warm contemporary lens. With a nod to design elements borrowed from fashion, the collection balances opposites: line vs volume, bright vs muted, transparent vs opaque.
