There’s no flashy website, no mega PR team, and no glossy brochures, but word about this beauteous highchair by Christopher Kurtz is spreading like wildfire. Suberbly clean and effortlessly simple in design, the chair cannot help but take centre stage despite its unpretentious demeanour.
Kurtz is primarily a sculptor and has just branched out into furniture design, a passion he has been harbouring for some years. He has a studio in upstate New York where infinite attention to the smallest detail is central to the work ethic. In my experience, what appears to be the very simplest design, is in fact, the most difficult to create, especially when it comes to furniture where durability and sturdiness are equally as important as looks. I can only imagine the hours of work that must have gone into making this amazing piece – the way the circles are so perfectly stacked, the way the tray attaches to the chair, the camber of the seat. I’d have it in an instant!
There’s currently no public information on price or availability, but we just had to share this one with Babyology readers who share our obsession with the very best and latest in design.
