merging traditional craft techniques with modern technology, danish design brand overgaard & dyrman has created ‘the wire collection’. based on saddlery and metal work, the series includes a dining chair, lounge chair, love chair and a coffee table. challenging a sense of synergy and contrast in the use of materials, a balance is found between functionality, ergonomics and manufacturing. all made within a workshop just outside of copenhagen, the ‘wire collection’ comes in a black coated steel frame or in a clear coated brushed one. the upholstery front is made from a soft 2mm vegetable tanned leather with the back uses a 3,5 mm full-grain leather.
‘merged with the use of modern machinery, it gives us the opportunity to preserve the fantastic craft skills that are still among us, and to combine these with complex forms and manufacturing methods.’ says technical director, christian dyrman.
