Léonard Kadid is an architect and product designer based in Paris, France. From object to architecture, the work of his studio focuses on structural experimentation and formal simplification to explore the intrinsic characteristics of matter. Having previously showcased Léonard's lighting design, on this occasion we take a closer look at his work in furniture design.
The Pier chair, produced by Resident, is inspired by the straight, weighty cylindrical pillars of pier structures. Made entirely from solid oak, the dining chair is composed using only mortise and tenon joints, allowing the wood fibres to run continuously throughout, giving the piece sustained durability.
Pier's solid oak seat and backrest are precisely carved by CNC to create a comfortable seating position. Easily stackable, the Pier chair has a strong yet refined presence that suits a range of domestic and commercial interiors.
