Wick chair: Designed by Karl Malmvall & Jesper Ståhl

The Wick chair is a modular and versatile chair that combines tradition and avant-garde “Karl and Jesper placed an old basket in front of me, explaining that this was what they had in mind,” Anders Färdig remarks. “I was pretty much all at sea!”.

The intention was never to produce a basket but the item that the designers presented explains the origins of the Wick Chair and the values that it conveys. Wood, whether it is solid or laminated as in the slender back of the Wick Chair, is more pleasant than plastic which is often experienced as either too cold or too hot.
