Chair with interspace
The chair In Between SK1 from & Tradition plays with the existing and non-existing spaces that this chair occupies and fills. The play between positive and negative space is a central theme of the chair design.
The two conspicuously large gaps in the side and backrest of the chair, as well as the existing design of the chair, create forms and spaces, giving the chair a complex design that plays with the perceptions of the viewer.
Play with the senses
The chair In Between SK1 made of solid wood is absolutely stable and strong and appears light and filigree due to the generous spaces and the fine wood grain. The designer Sami Kallio uses two classic techniques for this. The moulding press presses the wood into the right shape, making it thinner, lighter and at the same time more durable. Turning is used to better emphasise the characteristics and structure of the wood.
The traditional Scandinavian woodworking and the innovative, detail-loving ideas of the designer Sami Kallio come together in the chair In Between and transform the chair into a diffuse design object that plays with all senses.
