The new “knock-down” version of COLOUR & LINE CHAIR to be shown at TENT LONDON
After its debut at DesignTide Tokyo now for the first time on show in Europe the new prototype of our Colour & Line Chair. Constructed with a minimum amount of elements the chair offers a puzzle-like playfulness and geometric beauty through its lines and surfaces.
The basic concept of showing the connections and the interconnections of the elements in an honest way forms the base of its aesthetic. Its assembly method is minimal.
The seating element and backrest simply slot into the armrests and are held in place with wedges that remain visible as subtle details. This allows the chair to be stored and transported flat. Consistently made out of 18mm durable maple plywood, only the chairs surfaces are coloured leaving the wood grain exposed. The lines of the plywood layers are left blank while the whole chair is poly-urethane lacquered. Change the colours of the parts and an infinite number of combinations can be created. With this possibility of variation, the chair can fit any interior environment. And not only is the chair aesthetically good-looking but the slanted seating and backrest guarantee it is also comfortable in use. Except for a dining chair, a lounge chair and matching table can be produced as well.

“CHAIR 1 COLOR & LINE CHAIR” can be assembled in almost infinite ways with its interchangeable parts made of different colors and materials. Although the chair is constructed with a minimum amount of elements-flat surfaces and lines-it also offers a puzzle-like playfulness and geometric beauty. With its possible variations, the chair can almost fit any interior environment. And not only is the chair aesthetically good-looking but it is also comfortably designed.
We are currently working on new furniture including tables and shelves, retaining the same concept to create a consistent series of products.
