‘the profile chair’ by knauf & brown
folding on a single axis, vancouver-based studio knauf & brown have conceived ‘the profile chair’.
‘the design was a response to everything we didn’t like about folding chairs. folding chairs are shy,
coming out only when extra
seating is needed. they are ashamed of their cluttered leg regions,
complicated actions, and cheap materials.’
cutting down on intersecting lines and giving the seat a minimal profile results in taking up less visual
and physical space when open and closed. constructed using solid larch and a powder coated metal frame,
‘profile chair’ is intended for everyday use whether indoors or outdoors.
