(IMPORTANT INFO! The Clamp chair has been published last year (2011/2012) as a prototype hand made by the designer himself without having found a manufacturer yet! After a process of refining proportions making the design manufacturable, it goes now into production!) This final chair version & photographs haven’t been published yet!
Amsterdam based designers Andreas Kowalewski presented his finalised Clamp Chair design last week in Milan, which now goes into production by japanese furniture brand Miyazaki Chair Factory.
The design was driven by the idea to create an comfortable yet simple and light wooden object, that emphasizes the beauty of wood and craftsmanship.
Called Clamp Chair, the design was driven by the idea to create an comfortable yet simple and light wooden object, that emphasizes the beauty of wood and craftsmanship.
Its appearance is characterized through the seamless transitions between all parts. The upholstered seat and backrest are supported by a very slim wooden frame which comes either in ash, oak or walnut. The chairs are manufactured with a combination of handcraft and CNC tooling. Each chair is assembled by hand and the carefully selected wood is finished with 100% natural beeswax oil.
