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.
Bergen-based Stine Aas has a master’s degree in Furniture and Spatial Design from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design. Through tactile, functional and visual furniture and objects, she fuses character and simplicity, finding inspiration in everyday interactions between people and their physical surroundings. Aas founded her studio in 2015, and was named Newcomer of the Year during Raff Design Week in Bergen later that year. Her work has been exhibited in Stockholm, Helsinki, London, Milan, New York and Los Angeles.
