Details: Naive is a simply constructed wooden chair designed by etc.etc. studio for Lithuanian furniture brand Emko.
The chair uses six equal parts that act as legs and backrest. This simplifies the chair’s assembly and makes production and transportation more efficient.
The chair comes flat-packed in a small box and is easily put together by screwing the six legs into a scooped ash seat.
Says etc.etc., “Our starting idea was to design a chair that could be drawn by a four year old – a seat and six sticks. The main challenge was to combine the parts in precise angles and lengths to create comfortable sitting and a welcoming posture.”
The chair can be used with or without a soft “pullover” (upholstery!) for more comfort and is available in six colours or natural oiled ash. The user can also mix the colours for of all the parts.
Naive will be presented at Maison et Objet 2015 together with etc.etc.’s previous design for Emko, My Writing Desk.
