A solid stackable chair in tinted oak, Frame has been designed to be both simple and affordable to produce. Born from Aas’ exploration of the archetypal elements of a chair, and inspired by geometric patterns, the chair comprises a firm body with a softer, laminated shell on top. The backrest is shaped in a perfect semicircle, so that when several chairs are placed in a row, they form a pattern reminiscent of the archways and decorative motifs of classical architecture.
With an MA in spatial and furniture design from Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Stine Aas creates products and furniture that blend character and simplicity. Her work is inspired by the everyday interactions between people and the objects around them, and she typically combines the visual, the tactile and the functional in her design. Working from Bergen, Aas has exhibited internationally in Stockholm, Helsinki, London, Milan, New York and Los Angeles. She was named Newcomer of the Year at Bergen’s Raff Design Week in 2015.
