With a penchant for modest yet timeless design one's attention is immediately engaged when viewing the works of Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen, the design duo behind Afteroom. Their mission is to create beautiful products to grow old with pivoting around a philosophy of honesty and simplicity. I'm particularly taken with their Lounge Chair for Menu which takes inspiration from Thonet's Bentwood Chair and Børge Mogensen's Spanish Chair. Hopefully I age with such timeless beauty as this chair or at least be extremely comfortable whilst doing so.
