By borrowing from both European and Japanese carpentry traditions for his Udon Chair, Staffan Holm creates a compelling version of the classic bistro chair. Built from a simple few sturdy joints, Udon attains an openness uncommon to such stiff seating. The beech wood’s subtle grain is accentuated by the variously colored stains. Settle for a quick break around the table to dine, work, or play.
The poetry of handcraft and the wonders of modern technology are the sources of Staffan Holm’s inspiration. The Swedish designer worked as a carpenter before entering the renowned School of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg, where he later founded his own studio. It’s here that he realises his vision: to convey human qualities and emotions through his high-quality, beautifully made pieces.
