Mint Escapes: Side Chair by Minja Kolehmainen
by Jaime / September 24, 2009

Design showroom Mint has organized the exhibition Mint Escapes to coincide with the events of London Design Week. The display includes pieces by "modern day storytellers who use the medium of design and craft as the interpretive voice of imagination." The theme resulted in a range of intriguing products including a wooden side chair by Minja Kolehmainen. Inspired by a Louis VI side chair, Kolehmainen's update uses wood that evokes striped fabric instead of soft upholstery for the seat. The chair's components are CNC-cut and then assembled and finished by hand, in a combination of technology and craftsmanship.
