The multi-purpose Studio chair series is designed by Simon Legald for use in both domestic and public spaces. The series includes chairs, armchairs and barstools in two heights. All models are stackable, making the range suitable for restaurants and educational facilities with the need for transformable areas. The steel frame makes it easy to grab hold of the chairs and move them around as required.
There is something virtually graphic about the way the slender steel frame grows out below the Studio chair’s seat and back, framing the molded shell in an airy design. The flowing lines stand out in an eye-catching silhouette, like a line drawing or a pictogram, just as the empty spaces between the frame and the back act to define the shape. The simple construction in veneer and steel tubing directs one’s thoughts towards older French factory chairs, giving Studio its industrial notes. A design that attracts attention, but glows with pure simplicity.
Simon Legald (born 1986) is a Danish designer. Legald graduated during the summer 2012 and he already has several own designs in production. When asked about his own style and design aesthetics, he describes them as "honest with nordic simplicity".
