Chair with space in between
The In Between Chair SK1 by &Tradition plays with the existing and non-existing rooms which are occupied and filled with it. The game between positive and negative space is the central theme of chairs design.
The two strikingly large gaps in the sides and back of the chair, as well as the already existing design of it are the reason why forms and spaces arise for the chair to get a complex design that plays with the cognition of the observer.
Play with the senses
The Chair In Between SK1 made from solid wood is perfectly stable and strong and it has an effect from the big gaps and the noble wooden grain, looking weightless and filigree. The designer Sami Kallio therefore used two classical techniques of woodworking. The form press presses the wood into its shape and makes it thinner, lighter and at the same time more stable and the woodturning is used to highlight the characteristics and the structure of the wood.
The traditional Scandinavian woodworking process and the detailed ideas of the designer Sami Kallio come together at the chair In Between and transform the chair into a diffuse object which plays with all your senses.
