SODA – Modern Furniture Design from Nada Nasrallah and Christian Horner


above: the Lester leather indoor deck chair by SODA design.

Design studio SODA Design, based in Vienna, is comprised of Nada Nasrallah and Christian Horner, who met studying Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and the ENSCI/Les Ateliers in Paris.

They have created tailored, elegant products for such respected and well-known brands as Ligne Roset, MDF Italia, Rapsel spa and Wittman and have garnered numerous awards, nominations and exhibitions for their work.

What intially caught my eye was their stunning leather tufted deck chair and matching ottoman, The Lester — a deckchair for indoor-use with fine leather upholstery produced by Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten.

So, I looked into them a little more and found they have have a project portfolio worth sharing.

Two of their most recent projects:

The SO chair presented at SALONE DEL MOBILE 09 at LIGNE-ROSET, and the ARNE bathtub nominated for ELLE DECO International Design Awards

Other projects:

Dorian Mirror/hanger:

Leather indoor raft (prototype):

The Lester with leather raft and leather innertube prototypes:

The Tavolino side table/magazine holder:


Salt and Pepe – Magnetic Salt and Pepper shakers:

The Rondo chair:

The Lux – an illuminated bar table:

The York leather sofa:

About the designers:

Coming from the different professional backgrounds of carpentry and gold/silversmith, the common interest that lead to their working together was the taking up of challenging design projects. With teaching experience from the NDC/Kingston University and work experience at Sottsass Associati and Paolo Rizzatto in Milan, Philips Design Vienna/ Singapore and SAGEM, Soda Designers are now based in Vienna and are engaged in a variety of projects covering furniture, consumer-electronics and interior design.
