Details: Danish furniture makers Overgaard & Dyrman have created a bar stool inspired by traditional saddle making. Part of a collection called Wire launched in 2014, which already counts a dining chair, a lounge chair, a lounge sofa and a coffee table, the bar stool is a fusion of craftsmanship with references to traditional saddle making and metal work.
Says co-founder Jasper Overgaard, “With the Wire Bar Stool we aimed for a piece of furniture that works beautifully standing alone, but yet with strong references to the rest of the Wire Collection. We wanted to make an elegant stool that substantiates the idea of using traditional saddle making techniques combined with a cleverly thought steel structure.”
“We like the idea of keeping structural elements and different materials separated and to focus on how graceful interactions between materials and individual parts can be achieved.”
The upholstery for the bar stool, and the Wire Collection in general, is crafted by using traditional techniques known from saddle making where thick full-grain tooling leather, a layer of foam and a soft aniline leather is sewn together to gain stiffness and comfort to the saddle.
Like the saddle, the footrest in solid wood with its softly curved cigar shape provide a comfortable detail to the chair and complement the steel frame.
