By borrowing from both European and Japanese carpentry traditions for his Udon Chair, Staffan Holm creates a compelling version of the classic bistro chair.
Built from a simple few sturdy joints, Udon attains an openness uncommon to such stiff seating. The beech wood’s subtle grain is accentuated by the variously colored stains. Settle for a quick break around the table to dine, work, or play. ×
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.
