BAIA CHAIR

Designet af Kensaku Oshiro, 2021

As a tribute to Danish furniture design, the Japanese designer Kensaku Oshiro has created a chair, which, in the most distinguished way, unites Danish and Japanese design aesthetics. The inspiration from a bay is embodied in the smoothly curved C form of the wooden backrest, which lies tangentially on the top of the elegant steel frame and gives a warm and soft contrast to the steel and leather components.

The construction of the steel frame has a fine balance between the thin vertical lines of the tubes and the distinct horizontal elements. Each leg has a small round finish, and the width between the front legs is wider than between the back legs, which brings symmetry to the chair and gives it a harmonious and characteristic look.

The solid wood backrest is manufactured by using a special steam bending technology, and both the backrest and the frame have been sanded by hand. The frame comes in either black powder coated steel or stainless steel, and the backrest comes in oak, black lacquered oak, smoked oak or walnut. The soft, upholstered seat provides a high seating comfort, and is available in either leather or fabric.

The diverse features of each component are perfectly balanced in the design and give the chair a refreshing lightness and a unique, renewed appearance.
