design / Claesson Koivisto Rune SE

This seating collection was created in partnership with the Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune. It takes inspiration from Josef Hoffmann’s 1930 design of the modernist model A811, with the Swedish creators extending the design in the direction of contemporary Scandinavian minimalism. They have created a distinct version whose proportions work better with the natural forms created by manual wood-bending technology, and which gains a unique character from the graphic dot perforations in the plywood seat and backrest. These design principles have been applied to a chair, an armchair, a lounge armchair, a bar stool and a low stool.

place

We manually bend our furniture in the same workshops where this technology has been in use since 1861. However, we moved the features of this unique technique further more and mix them with contemporary designers’ thoughts. Our tables and chairs become a connection of quality, innovative shapes and a legacy to the place that has learned to understand the wood for generations.
