Sedus Chairs (1999)
Design 1998 / ongoing Production since 1999.
for: Sedus Stoll AG, Waldshut, Germany
Each ‘corner’ has a particular character, a personality, an appolstered form a ‘Corporal integrity’ synthesizing the individual components of seat, arm and back. Each ‘corner’ hovers – supported by an off-centre, tectonic chromed leg and angled steel foot.
Corner 1 : Symmetrical – generous, embracing arms and seductively reduced seat. Two stainless steel legs play a ski-like supporting role.
Corner 2 : Armless, compact – a restrained luxury both as meeting/conference chair or as individual ‘partner chair’ (‘Lebensabschnittsgefährtensitz’).
Corner 3 : A jovial fellow – unsymmetry – multidirectionality – the freedom to sit formally or casually, frontally or sideways – ‘this way or that way’.
