The story of Dent chair started with the idea of trying to achieve the impossible: to mould a double-curved 3D surface out of regular veneer. At the same time, the story of Dent is the story of how the rejected became the selected.
We have had many years’ experience of designing chairs using traditional plywood moulding techniques, always trying to extend the boundaries of what is possible without “cheating” by using expensive 3D veneer. With Dent we decided to be even bolder, by taking a step beyond where we have already been, out of our comfort zone and into the unknown.
Despite its rough appearance, Dent is a comfortable multi-purpose chair - and it will grow into a family of individuals with various finishes and leg bases, serving the different needs of most public and residential spaces.
