this collection was designed by ronan and erwan bouroullec for the remodelled faculty of humanities at københavns universitet in copenhagen, due to reopen in january. the two-part seat shell is an interesting detail, and i like how both the tables and chairs stack.
Very quickly we had this intuition that for both reasons – comfort and probably price – we could cut the shell in two parts. This would create a very interesting aesthetic because it will create a bridge, so we do not have to fix the shell on a structure.
made from oak and beech for the department’s meeting rooms, offices, libraries and classrooms, they are manufactured and will be available from hay.
