GEOMETRIC SERIES

The Geometric Series from BassamFellows celebrates the sublimity of pure geometry championed by the Wiener Werkstätte and the Bauhaus. In the same way that designers of these two influential schools tested the liberating material properties of bentwood and tubular steel, Bassam refined a set of constraints to spirit cold-rolled tubular steel into forms that hold the horizontal planes of a seat deck or tabletop, achieving the poetic appearance of extreme lightness and suspension. These stately steel scaffolds operate as a connective tissue uniting the furniture’s functional elements in a Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art, a synthesis central to BassamFellows’ philosophy of formal and functional coherence in design.

The Geometric Side Chair elegantly combines a variety of materials in a single design. It features an ergonomically shaped seat carved from solid Walnut and a lightweight pellicle skin of Vienna caning. The nickel or bronze plated tubular steel is wrapped with natural grain leather for high touch comfort and to conceal all welds, joinery, and seams, forming a signature element that runs through the Geometric Collection. Leather wrapping also provides extra comfort and support by connecting the two structural elements of the chair’s tubular steel back. The Geometric Lounge Chair uses the same signature elements and includes additional back and arm cushions for more relaxed comfort.

The Geometric Dining Table is BassamFellows first pedestal table featuring a tubular steel base formed from a collection of radiating postal elements mechanically fixed and cinched together with wrapped leather. The top is veneered Walnut with a carved, solid Walnut edge. This 60” table marks the first in a system of smaller tables to be added to the Geometric Series, which will feature fewer base posts to accommodate tabletops with less surface area.

The Geometric’s Daybed’s seat deck is comprised of a Walnut frame with pegged slats engineered to allow for variable flex. The tubular steel base creates a continuous arc that holds leather cushions made of dual-density foam for comfort and support. Leather-upholstered cushioning is precision-crafted to fit securely and snugly within the tubular steel armature. Tufted cushions feature cross-angle seams that radiate from the tuft to align with the posts of the tubular steel structure, a gesture that highlights the design’s overall geometry, linking back to the importance of linearity and architectural draftsmanship inherent in BassamFellows’ work.

The Geometric Series will expand to include counter and bar stools, benches, and occasional tables.
