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.
Fredrik Färg and Emma Marga Blanche have emphasized the back of the chair, the part that is most visible, and this gives the whole piece a creative and exciting graphic expression. The name FRANKIE alludes to the dance legend Frankie Manning, who was one of the creators of the Lindy Hop.
