knudsen & hindenes: nord for VAD

‘nord’ by knudsen & hindenes

 

 

petter knudsen and steinar hindenes of norway based studio, knudsen & hindenes have designed ‘nord’ in collaboration with VAD, a series that includes a solid pine lounge chair and accompanying side table. the pieces, which were most recently on show as part of ‘norway now‘ at the 2011 stockholm furniture fair, use solid pine and felt – materials that are representative of norwegian heritage – in a contemporary context.

the chair consists of two modest wood frames that flank a molded felt seat and backrest. the pine, treated as floorboards traditionally were with caustic soda, water and sand, will beautify and mature with age and use.
