This chair embodies an interesting dichotomy: its lines are simple, but its creation required a specifically fine eye to shape the parts and carefully fit the joinery. The result is a delicately refined aesthetic supported by physical strength.
This chair is designed to be used for “active upright sitting,” rather than for lounging or relaxation. It is the result of an investigation of the various uses of chairs, and the understanding that each harbors a unique purpose.
Primary influencers of this piece were “Vidar's Chair,” designed by Swedish furniture maker Vidar Malmsten around 1970, as well as Scandinavian designs of the modern era and that which influenced them.
