Design processes can be chaotic. The path to the moment of clarity – namely the final product - often leads through a forest of doubt and disorder. Among growing piles of model foam, dust, cardboard, wood and coffee you find a surprisingly creative place – sometimes to produce a needle it takes a haystack. The Workshop Chair’s design is deliberately simple, almost archetypical, giving it a quiet, clean strength. The frame of solid Oregon pine harmoniously blends in with the seat and back made of laminated hardwood veneer, thereby eliciting a light yet robust expression.
CECILIE MANZ ON THE DESIGN
The Workshop Chair brings a playful approach to the wooden chair. The design creates a new perspective on archetypical Scandinavian design through its thin back shell and slightly curved seat that gives the chair its distinct look.
An honest chair with harmonious details, contrast round and sharp edges, visible wooden grains and solid, yet light proportions. An understated Scandinavian design object with harmonious craftsmanship detailing.
