"These are a pair of chairs by Ron Arad. They’re a bonkers amount of technology and craftsmanship. God knows how much they cost to make. They are extreme. They’re like the apogee of modern craft-furniture-object. I don’t know how comfortable they’d be to sit in!

"They’re like thrones for the contemporary super-rich. And they’re funny; one looks like cheese and the other one looks like a Aero bar – they’re brilliant. They sit perfectly in that meeting place of sculpture and furniture, which is a place I quite like."
