PIPE CHAIR is renewed featuring a WOODEN version, true to scandinavian tradition. The sculpted, fully-upholstered seat rests on an elegant, timeless base of wood creating a new experience of the PIPE CHAIR.
PIPE was named to evoke parts of a functional whole like the stem and bowl of a tobacco pipe. Each component has design and a valuable purpose. Besides this, the silhouette of the chair “the piping” has striking similarity to the shape of a well-crafted, handmade pipe.
SEEN IN SILHOUETTE THE CHAIR RESEMBLES A HAND-CRAFTED PIPE
… HELD IN THE HAND OF A DESIGNER, NATURALLY
From all angles the chair´s extravagant, organic shape shows off beautiful detailing which underlines the thoughtful work of the designer. The generous space of the chair offers excellent comfort while the graceful shape embraces you.
Pipe chair shows great craftsmanship in its handmade upholstery details and frame which enhance the characteristic shape and outline of the armrest. The elegant frame supports the chair in a way that integrates a light feel with strength. The outside of the legs have a distinct, sharp edge while the inside is rounded, emphasizing an aesthetic that is simultaneously organic an sculpted. The geometry allows a sturdy design without re-inforcement. That means reduced weight and material use, benefits from the perspectives of sustainability as well as function.
The PIPE collection comes in a variety of upholstery options. Friends & Founders’ UPHOLSTERY collection offers a wide range of sustainable fabrics and leathers for contract and residential use. The SELECTED collection features exclusive offerings for higher-end interior designs.
