Wendy Legro and Maarten Collignon are the founders of Studio WM - a design studio based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Guided by all senses, their mission is to create seemingly simple design that reflect the love that is put into them - and their details - for years to come.
Their Wire design is available as WM Dining chair and the low WM Lounge Chair.
They both have the same light and airy appearance and the thin structure of the
wire frame gives them a delicate feel, while also providing a fine contrast to any cushion you put on the dining chair - or the blankets, pillows and soft items you lay in the lounge version.
Studio WM explains, “The strength of metal gave us the freedom to push the boundaries and seek for the thinnest, most light construction to bring light into the design in a literal and figurative sense. The contrast between the thin metal wire and soft pillow evokes the urge to touch and use the product.” WM Dining Chair is very durable and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Along with the chairs, Studio WM also designed the WM Chair Cushion. Size 39x35cm for WM Dining Chair and 43x39cm for WM Lounge Chair. The cushions are sold separately and available in 100% wool for indoor use and durable acrylic material for outdoor usage.
In 2014 the studio won the AD Architectural Digest & MONOQI Design Award 2014. They were amongst the finalists of the Elle Decoration Design Talent Award 2010 and was nominated for the Fast Company Award 2012, German Design Award 2012, Interior Innovation Award 2013 IMM Cologne and Dutch Design Awards 2013 and 2014.
