Wicked Dining Chair

by Alain Gilles

In Stock


The Wicked Collection was originally designed by Alain Gilles for Vincent Sheppard. The dining chair is a graphic interpretation of the classic rattan chair: rattan seats typically have a structure made of thicker rattan parts and a skin made of much thinner woven rattan, both always heavily intertwined. The idea behind the Wicked chair was to treat the seat and the frame as separate elements to reveal the structure and create a discussion between both elements. The external metal structure makes a a bold statement and brings a fresh and modern feel to the design: contrasting a more masculine and almost art deco aluminum structure with a softer, rounder and more feminine shell. The chair comes in 3 seat colors (natural, taupe, black) over a slender black powder cotaed aluminum frame and pairs beautifully with the oval Wicked Dining Table.

Vincent Sheppard has been designing and manufacturing indoor and outdoor furniture with exceptional seating comfort and style since 1992. The Belgian company became famous with its 'Lloyd Loom' furniture, a technique where kraft paper is twisted around a metal wire and woven into unique furniture pieces. To that end, the company chose Cirebon, Indonesia to build its plant and develop a close collaboration with local craftsmen known for their tradition and expertise in weaving and bending rattan. Through the years, their product range was extended to incorporate other natural materials or high quality and durable synthetic outdoor furniture. All the products are designed and finished in Belgium with a lot of care and eye for detail.

Vincent Sheppard is an eco-conscious company and it received the FSC®-label by the Forest Stewardship Council in 2013: a symbol of environmental, social and economic sustainability.
