TWISTED Chair with armrests
To create the 'Twisted Collection,' Ward Wijnant played with the supremacy of materials as tough as steel. He has twisted the steel to form various pieces.
One would think that Ward challenged the laws of Physics to create such a unique collection. But he merely followed them and relied on unique application techniques. Nonetheless, creating 'Twisted' wasn't easy. He channeled immense effort, hard work, and force to mold iron rods by twisting, turning, and bending.
This collection features various furniture pieces and accessories. Twisted includes cabinets, seating, light fixtures, and mirrored accessories. All the pieces are the result of twisting, turning, and bending rods of steel.
