The Everyday chair has a quiet confidence that derives from its distilled form. Masters of simplicity, Swedish design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune were inspired by the curvilinear canvases of American artist Ellsworth Kelly to design a chair that epitomises restraint and refinement of form. Crafted from a simple wooden shell in a natural wood finish or a choice of colours, with either trestle legs or extremely efficient stacking legs, the Everyday chair can belong anywhere. Despite its apparent minimalism, Everday has an unprecedented level of comfort borne of the studio’s inherent understanding of the user’s experience. It is both the chair’s simplicity and superb comfort that elevate it above the ordinary yet make it a piece for use every day.
