#German #designer #KonstantinGrcic's love of #furniture dates back his highschool years, when he got a job with an antique furniture restorer.

The #ChairOne was developed over the space of 4 years, and was the first product #Grcic created using 3D modelling on computer.  The aim of the design was to use the least amount of material, while providing maximum strength and comfort…

Whilst always influential amongst many minimalists, it was only in the 70s that #Japanese design made it's presence felt on the world stage, largely thanks to the work of #ShiroKuramata.

Takahama first came to Italy when he was designing the Japanese pavilion for the #MilanTriennale. While at the triennale, he met Dino Gavina, the owner of Gavina SpA and was invited…

#Swedish designer #JohanLindsten has drawn on #Scandinavian #needlecraft traditions to create the #EmbroideryChair.  Created in #2016, the #ashwood #chairs have been created with four different #embroidered designs, one to match each #season. Lindsten sees design as a medium to bring thoughts and emotions into physical form, and it's an approach certainly visible in these chairs with their vivid seasonal imagery.
