the look of trouser braces fashionably define färg & blanche’s frankie chair

 

 

 

in their first collaboration with swedish brand johanson design, färg & blanche has realized ‘frankie’: a chair whose overall appearance has been influenced by a pair of trouser braces. derived from the duo’s personal interests in fashion, ‘frankie’ — whose name alludes to dancing legend frankie manning, one of the creators of the lindy hop — is characterized by suspender straps seen on the chair’s back, giving the furniture piece an almost human identity. conceived for office and commercial environments, ‘frankie’ has an upholstered seat and sprung back that offer high levels of comfurt, thus making it ideal for meetings and conferences.
