Danish architecture and design company, FRIIS & MOLTKE Architects, launches two new wooden designs to its expanding furniture collection.
The year is almost at an end, but the design industry is working at full throttle. At FRIIS & MOLTKE Architects, the design department has recently launched two new products: the Ayo Chair, designed for Schou Andersen, and the Timber Table, made for Getama.
“The Ayo Chair that we have designed for Schou Andersen is a very traditional chair. It’s designed for the nursing sector, which makes demands on design. It must be robust so it doesn’t tip over, it should be stackable, and so on,” says Mikkel Bahr, architect and partner at FRIIS & MOLTKE, before he continues:
“The Timber Table, on the other hand, has a funny story. Originally, we designed it for our own lunch room, and then people started to ask where they could get it. We chose Getama, which we find to be a company with very high standards. The table has a raw and honest design which fitted well into their portfolio.”
While the Ayo Chair is made from either oak or beech, the Timber Table is made from Douglas planks delivered by the Danish company, Dinesen. Even though the new designs have two very different modes of expression, there should be no doubt that they come from the same studio and are connected by the original FRIIS & MOLTKE spirit.
“The simplicity and sturdiness are what ties the two designs together. You believe and trust in the design, and both look robust without looking inelegant. The FRIIS & MOLTKE spirit is in the recognisability,” Mikkel Bahr concludes.
Both designs are available in stores. At the Stockholm Fair to be held in February 2018, the Timber Table will be a part of a collection including matching chairs and a sideboard.
