A comfortable, stackable chair made in solid ash wood.
The European furniture industry needs to innovate in new materials and designs that provide functionality and sustainability while preserving a point of unicity and craftmanship.
In collaboration with the finish carpentry company Fiskarson Puusepät Oy, the partnership will produce a stackable chair with good comfort, minimalistic form, made from natural wood using traditional craftsmanship to create a chair that is unique to the market. They use 5-axis CNC technology which can push the wooden material into new functions and forms in mass production.
The organic form of the wood adds an extra dimension to the chair and a tactile sensation when in contact with the human body. The Project is a combination of minimalistic design, traditional craftmanship and technology that makes possible to push a wooden material into new forms and functions.
