Designer Paul Nederend has created the Pole Chair in collaboration with Dutch design company Odesi. Traditional wood working techniques are used to create the chair’s oak wood frame. Here is a description from the designer, “During autumn I find the forest a beautiful place to be. When leaves have fallen from the trees, I occasionally look up. The exposed branches are an inspiring sight.
This network of visual lines is the main principle for the Pole chair. I’ve simplified this concept and applied it to the wooden frame. I wanted to stay true to the origin of my inspiration. That is why all shapes are rounded and organic.
Wood is great material which is applicable in many ways. My fascination for woodworking started a long time ago and this also shows in the Pole’s design.
Traditional woodworking techniques are used to combine the parts of the frame. This craftsmanship gives the Pole a whole lot of character, but the contemporary fabrics really make the chair come to life!”
