RAW Chair is a striking functional reworking of a recognizable everyday object.
A part of the RAW collection by Swedish designer Jens Fager, each chair is hand carved from solid pinewood. The surface structure of RAW is made by a band saw and then painted, which makes the finish of each chair distinct and individual.
Hand carved pine wood Each piece is unique.
Remove dust from chair with a soft cloth or remove abrasive dust particles. Periodically clean with moist cloth. Dry immediately with soft cloth following wood grains. The wood should not be subjected to excessive heat or humidity.
JENS FAGER is one of Sweden’s most interesting young designers.
A graduate from Konstfack University in Stockholm, he has already made an international impact with exhibitions in London, Milan and Stockholm.
JENS FAGER'S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“Everything is different. The core of my philosophy that permeates all is to treat every single product in an honest way and to find their main function. Secondly I always want a sense of humour, surrealism or poetry in my work. The end result is a natural product for the consumer.”
JENS FAGER ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“The strength of Nordic design is a natural learning and understanding of everyday needs. During the summer we need the functional carafe for serving chilled lemonade and in wintertime we need a cosy lamp. The strength of Nordic designers are that they have a critical eye for aesthetics and do not leave much to randomness. This brings beauty to the products.”
