MR01 Initial Chair - Oiled OakGubi –
MR01 Initial Chair unites traditional craftsmanship with original ideas in a simple form that is at once familiar and yet strikingly modern. Its low-slung, gentle incline is designed to give the sitter a sense of floating, while still feeling connected to the ground, promoting a contemplative sense of calm.
The repeating lines of the rope seat and backrest cast geometric shadows and intersect each other when viewed from different angles, almost creating optical illusions. The open triangle profile of the frame is constructed without a single screw, relying instead on artisanal cabinet-making techniques. This approach makes its construction and materiality entirely visible, lending the piece a sense of honesty and highlighting the craftsmanship involved.
