The stackable chair and armchair has it´s origin in a constructive idea about a wooden knot connecting the frame, legs and back. The knot has been a hub from which the chair has been given it´s characteristic form. The chair is a result of my long-lasting cooperation with NC and one can clearly see how this chair is an evolution of previous projects, such as the chair Tilt, which has a similar structure, or the chair Rialto in it´s expression. The new family member is a carefully thought out piece of furniture with a consistent and constructive expression. With the user in focus it uncompromisingly challenges the requirements of durability, function and ergonomics. With it´s features and expression it is a chair useful in many types of spaces - in a cafe or restaurant, in the lecture hall or around the conference table. Simply a chair for places where people are and meet.
The table Matti was originally designed for a friends dining room. He wished for a generous meeting place that would work at all times of the day. I found inspiration in the wooden furniture made by the Shaker movement and the result became a large but yet elegant table intended for big dinner gatherings, still with space left for the ten thousand pieces jigsaw puzzle one never finish. The table works just as well in public spaces as it does at home. It can be a big but informal conference table, a generous work desk, the study table at a library or forming the place for big companies in a restaurant environment. I think it feels very inviting with its large top and the carrying base shaped as a foot rest to use when you lean back after the coffee is served or the contract has been signed.
