“In the design, we have tried to combine mass-production techniques and materials, such as plywood for the seat and back, with sophisticated machining and finishing of the solid oak parts,” said PearsonLloyd team.
“We were immediately drawn to the ambition to combine the true spirit of Scandinavian design principles — craft, simplicity, elegance.”
PearsonLloyd’s new Cross Chair for Danish manufacturer TAKT features a frame of solid oak, a durable material with a natural weight that lends authority to the design.
Its name comes from its cross construction, which is the essence of the chair.
Its sophistication radiates nuance and care.
Oak has a characteristic structure that gives a beautiful texture and a familiar tangibility to the surface.
The chair is coated with a very thin water-based lacquer, that allows for easy cleaning while emphasizing the delicate structure of the wood.
Cross Chair Tube version features a frame made of recyclable high-pressure steel with a sturdy black powder coating that adds a graphic and elegant expression.
Cross Chair Tube shares the same lightweight visual language and assembly method with its predecessor, Cross Chair, but is materially distinct.
Where Cross Chair features a frame of solid oak, Cross Chair Tube incorporates a frame made of recyclable high-pressure steel with a sturdy black powder coating that adds a graphic and elegant expression.
Designed to look great from any angle, Cross Chair Tube presents enjoyable details with every view. It has clean lines and a comfortable design.
Cross Chair Tube has a thoughtful balance of elements that create an intricate but stable experience.
Its form gives the ability to be stacked as well as customized to fit any individual style.
The chair introduces a material contrast to the oak wood of the backrest and seat, and it creates a more slender and lightweight silhouette without sacrificing strength.
Furthermore, the use of a metal frame allows multiple chairs to be stacked easily for storage.
Cross Chair Tube can also be customized with a variety of Kvadrat wool fabrics and aniline leathers from Sørensen Leather, so your chairs will naturally blend in with your personal interior.
All fabrics are of course eco-labeled and our leathers have received the Nordic Swan Ecolabe Cross Chair Tube is designed through TAKT’s Eco System Design principles and are shipped component-based as flat packs, minimizing CO2 emissions during transportation.
The chair is eco-certified and produced using wood from sustainable forests and the full supply chain is certified. It is constructed for disassembly, meaning that all components are replaceable and worn parts can be replaced.
