'Straw' chair by osko+deichmann

'Straw' chair by osko+deichmann

The Berlin based designers osko+deichmann originally designed their cantilever straw chair in occasion of last year’s 90th Bauhaus anniversary. It was an homage to the Marcel Breuer classic.

The Swedish manufacturer Blå Station who produces also osko+deichmann’s sofa ‘Pebble’ was fascinated by the rather rough processing the designers used – instead of bending the metal tube smoothly, they edged it.

The Swedish company RVW Furniture was founded by the two designers Jonas Nordgren and Johannes Herbertsson in 2009. Based in Malmö in the south of Sweden they work closely with suppliers in the Öresund region and Småland to produce their furniture.

Like many designers Nordgren and Herbertsson grew tired of the fast paced design business and decided to take matters into their own hands.

“Things are finding their own pace now and we are working in close contact with our suppliers. Producing something that’s more than a throwaway takes time. There are so many logos and slogans about sustainability or local production, but to communicate expression or comfort is more delicate: if someone has to tell you how to enjoy a furniture or artwork, then it is not a good piece of art,” says Jonas Nordgren.
