Chairs

The chair’s basic concept is to create comfortable seat with simple flat surfaces. This is achieved through a precisely designed inclination of the seating and backrest that guarantees a proper body support. Constructed with a minimum amount of elements the chair offers a puzzle-like playfulness and geometric beauty through its lines and flat surfaces. The characteristic of showing the joints and the connections of the elements in a minimal and honest fashion forms the base of its aesthetic. Its assembly method is just as minimal.


The seating element and backrest simply slot into the armrests and are held in place with wedges that remain visible as subtle details. This allows the chair to be stored and transported flat. Consistently made out of 18mm durable birch plywood, only the chair’s surfaces are stain coloured, leaving the wood grain exposed. The lines of the plywood layers are left blank while the whole chair is poly-urethane lacquered. Change the colours of the parts and an infinite number of combinations can be created. With this possibility of variation, the chair can fit any interior environment be it a living dining, lounge or restaurant. In similar style as the dining chair, a lounge chair and matching table can be produced.


Frank la Rivière is a Dutch architect/designer who lives and works in Tokyo.
