Archetype For Today


Cubes Grafunkt

What would the archetypal wooden chair of today look like? Danish designer Thomas Bentzen translates the wooden Scandinavi­an stackable chair into a modern form language with the Cover Side Chair for Muuto. “I wanted to give the design a crisp and contempora­ry expression through its thin plywood material, paired with the solid and grounded sentiment of its frame and base in solid wood,” he says. “With the details of its curved backrest that folds gently around the back legs and its warm materialit­y, the chair translates the ideas of Scandinavi­an craftsmans­hip into a modern design language.” The oak chair is stackable (up to five chairs high) and lightweigh­t, making it handy for small spaces and varied contexts of use. In Singapore, Muuto is available from Grafunkt.
