This Stool’s No Stump

Metsä (Finnish for “forest”) is the result of two designers’ trip abroad to a little Finnish town called Lahti! Inspired by the area’s lush landscape, Metsä’s 9 legs create a geometric abstraction of a tree structure while giving it structural integrity. Composed entirely of raw birch, its aesthetic is the best of both natural and modern!

Designers: Geoffrey Riberry & Emmanuel Taillard

This Chair Is Supposed To Look Like A Fat Person's Flesh

Why?

Augh! Sometimes I really wish designers would stop showing so much skin. Last week, it was human flesh typography. This week it's human flesh furniture, a student project called, appropriately, the Flesh Chair.

Industrial Elegance at Its Best

The Robert stool’s uses robust tubular steel in contrast with thin hand-carved wood to create an aesthetic that is at once industrial and elegant. The seat is curved for seamless comfort and displays a striking diagonal accent inlay. The base’s colorful powder coated finish emphasizes the toughness of the material, ensuring that users can be confident in the durability of the design.

Why choose one when you can have 3?

If this chair looks familiar but you can’t quite put your finger on why, it’s because you’re seeing 3 of the most celebrated seating designs at once! Appropriately called the Masters chair, it pays homage to Eames, Saarineen and Jacobsen by incorporating the silhouettes of each of their iconic chairs into it’s seat-back. Also available in a stool version —>

Timeless Combinations

Markus Johansson’s Colibri chair transforms the inspiration from Nordic stick back chairs into a contemporary modernist expression – easy-going, yet classical. Furthermore, the design empowers its owner to take part in the construction process and choose from four different bases, four different backs, four different armrests, or even four different seats in textile or bonded leather. No matter the combination, there’s no going wrong!

Squirmable Seating

There’s something very honest and friendly about this simplistic yet inviting chair and footrest combination called Nuno. Everyone knows that when it comes to seating, true ergonomics mean you can adjust the position of your body and the chair will follow suit… not the other way around. That’s precisely what it achieves with thoughtful construction applied to otherwise basic materials. Check it out!

Studies have shown that ergonomic seating comfort is achieved through the connection between movements and changes in body position. In response to this, a simple bench offers your body the ability to sit in a way that is comfortable to you. The centerpiece of the chair is comprised of a flexible directional back made of felt. It is designed in a way that allows for varying positions and is therefore very adaptable. The adjustable backrest supports and warms the lower back, providing greater support.

Double Duty Seating

As you might guess from the name, the Octahedrons stool takes inspiration from simple yet functional geometries to form its multifunctional shape. How is it multifunctional? The support system is created using equilateral triangles that give it structural integrity whether it’s sideways or upright. Interchangeable seats adapt  to either position to accommodate one or two people depending on the user’s functional or aesthetic needs.

Feel Free to Fidget!

The H-Lounge was designed around the idea that a chair shouldn’t dictate how one should sit. Its gently arched corners provide just enough support to comfortably nest your bod, but not so much that it restricts being able to switch up your position completely. A simple architectural structure and fluid form mean freedom of movement and absolute comfort for active sitters!

We’ve Got Felt Fever

The Ivetta chair goes to show that simplistic design doesn’t have to be cold and uninviting! Available in both legged and rocking versions, the frame is composed of solid beech wood with seat back and arms are wrapped in soft felt. Despite its elementary geometries, it’s as cozy as can be!

A Scorpion Without the Sting

The Scorpion chair earns its title from its shape which subtly mimics the form of the creepy crawly creature by the same name… only with 3 legs instead of 8! Formed using a traditional Chinese mortise and tenon joint structure, the nail-less design falls somewhere between a chair and stool with its single extended leg that serves as a small back. Don’t be deceived by the name… it’s friendlier looking than you might think!

Tool-inspired Stool

The Eyore stool is an elegant fusion of tool and furniture that takes inspiration from the very device used to help carpenters create other forms of seating. The simplistic structure is identical to trestles used by carpenters to lift and support sofa cushions and couches. Suede accents and fabric in contrast with raw wood and metal rivets give it a refined industrial aesthetic suitable everywhere from the kitchen to the work studio.

Designer: Vered Venezia

A New Design Notion

NTN’s premier product launch, called Collection 01, focuses on material likeness and a similar construction process to tie these otherwise unrelated objects together as a series. A thoughtful balance of aluminum, fabric and natural wood define each as a singular product, but a shared design language makes them shine as a group.

Hammock Table
The Hammock Table is a low coffee table defined by a suspended fabric shelf. The shelf is kept in tension by rope connecting to aluminum leg mounts. The solid table top is of bleached Irish sycamore which is blended into the round legs.

W1 Watch
The front and back body parts of the W1 watch are CNC machined from solid aluminum. The integrated aluminum dial is created in the same process. The floating increments are etched directly onto the crystal. The watch is finished with a vegetable tanned leather strap. Available in both natural and black anodized aluminum.

Dowel Chair
The Dowel Chair is a modern take on the classic windsor chair. Constructed from solid bleached irish sycamore the seat back consists of sixteen spindles with a removable fabric cover. On the underside the legs are blended into the seat.

G1 Glasses
The character of the G1 Glasses comes as much from the materials as the shape. Formed plywood frames and temples are connected by a CNC machined aluminum armature. This armature also incorporates the custom brass hinge. Available in teak and natural aluminum with brown lens or black stained ash and black anodized aluminum with black lens.

Waterford Lamp
This pendant lamp consists of a thick, clear glass shade hand blown in Waterford, Ireland. A machined aluminum hanger suspends the shade from the grey braided cable. The lamp is finished with a hand stitched filament bulb.

50s Seating Reawakened

The Acapulco Chair is one of the most iconic outdoor seating designs of the 20th Century. To clebrate the chair’s 60th Anniversary, The Common Project has released a special Limited Edition consisting of a chrome-plated frame with a translucent shell. The revamp brings new life to the design, transforming it from a fun patio chair into luxury indoor and outdoor seating. For the purist, the chair is still available in the 4 classic colors: black, white, mustard, and turquoise.

A Rocking Horse With Roots

Sitting itself is kinda boring, but design shouldn’t be… it should be fun! That’s the philosophy behind this modern interpretation of the classic Panton chair. To  preserving the timeless character of the chair, the designers have avoided decorating it arbitrarily. The chair becomes an integral part of the design, as it would have been intended as a rocking horse by Panton in 1959. Original materials of the chair combined with locally grown wood, (in contrast to the dark fabric & metal) communicate elegance & lightness.

Designer: David Schellander & Stefanie Richtsfeld

Sculptural Seating

Influenced by Noguchi’s philosophy in which “everything is sculpture,” the Poise chair inspires the user to see what they’d like in its abstract form. With natural, flowing curves and refined materials of solid oak and genuine kudu leather, the chair’s design embodies the word, poise.
