Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Designed by Vancouver-based Richard Trory for Edits, the new Circus Wood chair is an elegant modern dining chair intended for residential interiors while being strong enough for commercial environments.
Circus Wood is a contemporary update of the archetypal mid-century modern Scandinavian wood chair.
Defined by clear visual logic, innovative construction details and advanced manufacturing are combined to achieve a graphic and elegant form.
Produced in partnership with one of the most skilled family-owned wooden chair manufacturers in Italy, our collaboration embodies the essence of a modern industrial approach.
Each chair is formed of four distinct elements – a pair of Y-shaped legs, a curved backrest, and a wooden seat.
The symmetrical Y-legs articulate the lines of force supporting the occupant, while the curved backrest offers a generous embrace.
The seat is made from natural-white European ash.
Production is maintained in small controlled batches with meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship, while industrial methods provide consistent precision and efficiency.
The chair’s production also honors a modern environmental ethic: FSC-certified wood, zero-emission paints and glues, eco-friendly packaging, and natural-fiber fabrics that meet strict European standards.
