Wiggle Furniture

The designs featured within this exhibit centre their aesthetics around playfully borrowed references from historical decorative styles, with inspiration stemming from pioneers of the early modernist movement such as the works of Le Corbusier and Rudolph Vichir.

The project aims to create visually exciting furniture that balances the juxtaposition between masculine elements, traditionally associated with early modernism, and contemporary hyper-feminine influences.

The distinctive wiggle frames, comprised of powder-coated tubular steel, create a shared language between the pieces that is distinctive throughout the further wiggle furniture family.

The wiggle chair is a statement piece on account of the leopard print velvet upholstery, making a bold impact that commands attention. Whilst the wiggle side table, with its unusual cantilever design, involves a distinct sense of play, aiming to put the fun in functional.
