Bold designs have this unexplained appeal that seems to create an intriguing atmosphere around them. If you add a touch of Gothic, the piece of furniture stands out on its own. I’m thinking about the Monster Face Chairs by Marcel Wanders – a collection of modern chairs with a dark twist. Quilted synthetic leather stretched over a steel frame make up the basic design – some chairs have this stunning monster face imprinted on them, while others don’t display this twist, but showcase a stubborn elegance.

Originally designed for Moooi, the dark chair collection expresses the designer’s hope for an eternal dinner, where seven muses would join him around the table. This fantasy created the chairs in his mind, dragging reality after it. Splendid both in design, eco-friendly features and story, these chairs promise to create a different atmosphere and surprise guests with their unforgettable presence.
