Like many previous chair projects I have designed the Lightwood Chair is about structure, making use of the unbeatable craftsmanship of Maruni’s wood technology to achieve a light wooden structure. This can be completed with a variety of different solutions for the seat, starting with the lightest, a white mesh, which leaves the structure partially visible, then a woven webbing which reminds us of shaker furniture, except that it’s a synthetic webbing which makes an interesting contrast with the wood, and then the more traditional upholstered seat in fabric or leather, which provide extra comfort and can be removed for cleaning. It’s a contract chair which is equally suitable to the home.
Lightwood uses the least amount of wood possible to achieve a lightweight but strong dining chair. Birchwood frame with plastic mesh (Available in leather, textile or woven synthetic webbing) ‘lightwood’ includes a chair made from solid birch that features either webbed, cushioned (upholstered leather or fabric) or woven mesh seating options. in the case of the upholstered leather and fabric, the material is detachable making it easy to clean.
