by Staffan Holm
By borrowing from both European and Japanese carpentry traditions for his Udon Chair, Staffan Holm creates a compelling version of the classic bistro chair. Built from a simple few sturdy joints, Udon attains an openness uncommon to such stiff seating. The beech wood’s subtle grain is accentuated by the variously colored stains. Settle for a quick break around the table to dine, work, or play.
Designed by Staffan Holm
The poetry of handcraft and the possibilities of modern technology are at the core of Staffan Holm’s practice. The Swedish designer worked as a carpenter and cabinet maker before entering the renowned School of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg, where he later founded his studio. It's there Holm realises his vision of conveying human qualities and emotions through his high-quality pieces.
