On the OSSA Chair

Canada-based designers Solveig Johannessen and Krystin Clarke has created the OSSA Chair. According to the designer description on Contemporist, this dining chair is constructed to ‘evoke surprise and delight with an expressive folding motion through its centre spine.”

The design, although nicely functional in that it folds up, is a little clinical and reminiscent of slightly soulless Scandinavian furniture. Design is embracing richer, more grainy timbers which wear their knots and flaws like badges of honour.

For those who like a more minimalistic, clean look then this is for you – but design has, in general, moved on.
