for Another Country
Being asked by Another Country to develop a concept for a chair, the idea was to capture the strong typology of a traditional alpine chair in order to transform it into a contemporary piece of furniture. The result is a chair that inherits the utility centered identity of a solid rural piece while developing its own character through the use of a more slender and sophisticted construction. Combining traditionally wedged elements of solid timber with thin plywood shells leads to a craft based yet light and slightly elegant chair. Another Chair is supposed to function in various domestic environments. Serving well next to a kitchen table as well as comfortably living in company of a dining table.
