Udon is effortlessly charming—a seemingly simple chair. In reality, a huge amount of skill underlies this contemporary classic’s form. Designer Staffan Holm took inspiration from archetypal bentwood chairs and borrowed traditional Japanese carpentry traditions, and used just a few simple joints to maintain a clean line and open structure. Colored wood stains accentuate a lively wood grain, and a generous seat promises a comfortable sit. The Udon Upholstered Chair features the highest-quality Scandinavian leather, adding yet another layer of comfort and elegance.
The poetry of handcraft and the wonders of modern technology are the sources of Staffan Holm’s inspiration. The Swedish designer worked as a carpenter before entering the renowned School of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg, where he later founded his own studio. It’s here that he realises his vision: to convey human qualities and emotions through his high-quality, beautifully made pieces.
