Designer Antoine Lesur solves complicated furniture issues with a simple solution.

We’ve seen lots of modular furniture designs over the past few years. A lot of the designs become complicated because they try to solve too many problems at once. The results often don’t look that good, require too many parts or aren’t intuitive and easy to configure. Designing anything to be modular ultimately begins with a compromise and that can be tricky to resolve.

Mister T by Paris-based designer Antoine Lesur is a great example of modular design done right. Composed of four simple pieces, a tray, two cushions, and a wood base, these elements can be reoriented in many ways. Each piece is designed to look good on it’s own as well as combined together. The photos really illustrate some of the versatility. Lesur created a perfect balance of function and style. One does not dominate the other.

MISTER T is neither a coffee table, nor a chair, nor a footrest, but a little of each.

Mister T is part of a new ‘Made in Design’ collection by French company Oxyo.
