Childrens Aepe Chair by Roman Bentley


Says Roman Bentley, “Decided to launch the Aepe chair due to this flatpack furniture craze that has been happening for some time, inspired by japanese and scandinavian designers. Have friends and family with small children who are always looking for affordable furniture so I began the quest for a solution. What more can I say its a chair but the thought, the materials used, the design, construction and the practicality of it makes it unique in my opinion.”

    It’s nice, it reminds me of the Gerrit Rietveld experiments of 1927…but before encouraging it’s production the first question I would ask would be about the material and how long it will release the foaming agent that was used in its production. I would like to know, so I ask…

      Gerrit Rietveld was a dutch legend definitely an inspiration to anyone in furniture design…the material is a variation on ‘XPE100′ we have been working with a specialist lab to refine the material for it to be stronger for commercial use…more info will be on our website soon, follow on twitter for more updates

    I think it’s similar to Owl Chair by The Design Labo Inc. Tokyo in 2012.

    I already saw this design before, the joint is quite the same and you’ve changed the design of the backrest. As far as i know, design is about to be creative, not to see-change a little bit-apply to your product.

    Well unfortunately it looks almost the same with the Owl Chair from Design Labo Japan….
