The Strain product family comprises an armchair, a bar stool and tables of various heights. This diversified product family shares one common feature: the design of the product base and legs, which is always a challenge. The solution for very distinguishable leg junctions is found in intertwining and intertwisting of steel tubes whose modular relations can change depending on a particular use. The result is a recognizable family of products with variations of a common basic idea where the concept of junctions is not only an appealing formal interplay but also an element that complements the hardness of the construction. Visually light and uncustomary slender, the Strain armchair offers extraordinary comfort due to the elasticity of leather and net fabric tightly stretched over the seat shell. A lumbar cushion provides additional comfortableness. A saddle served as the inspiration for the ergonomic design of the solid wood seat of the barstool. This entirely functional family is rounded off with multidimensional coffee tables with various finishes.
