We received photos and information about a minimalist chair design entitled Stuck Chair and design by Utrecht based studio Oato. A chair that was created by taking apart all the elements of an archetypal chair and rearranged as if they were simply stuck together. The product is a research about new possibilities of construction and materials. Doing so we created a chair that doesn’t need additional supports, all the element now have a leading and supporting role in the total structure of the chair.
The seating and the legs are created out of wood that makes them squirm tight. The backrest is made out of steel so it won’t loose shape when force is applied; therefore it maintains the chair’s shape as much as possible. The chair is made from oak wood and the backrest is made out of powder-coated steel. The Stuck chair has been applied for the ARC12 Chair design contest initiated by Thonet and dutch architecture magazine de Architect. It received a special mention for its innovative use of material and keen details. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Studio Oato]
