We had the idea for the bar stool when we were examining how we could develop the Frankie chair. We picked out aesthetic elements from the back along with details such as the jointing of the tubing.
The resulting shape is like two straps holding and pressing the seat in place forming two clear folds in the seat and creating a soft look. The seat also has the same characteristic curved shape as the back of the Frankie chair with edges that fold inwards on each side,” says Fredrik Färg.
Stockholm based design studio Färg & Blanche is known for their experimental stance, where each expression informs the other.
They eﬀortlessly move between the exclusive hand made one oﬀ and the industrially produced, without ever losing their distinctive touch. We are proud to present our ﬁrst collaboration Frankie - a chair with a strong identity.
