Oaki Chair Design Stine Aas for Northern
The Oaki Chair is designed by Stine Aas for Northern. It is a dining chair that is characterized by the love of craftsmanship and design. The Scandinavian love of design combined with the craftsmanship of Japanese furniture creates this nice result. The Oaki Chair is a comfortable dining room chair without visible connections. The designer set out to conceal the chair’s joins, giving Oaki a refined, uniquely weightless character that looks seamless in appearance. Each leg rises from the floor to the full height of the chair, cradling the backrest between all four. The rear legs are angled backwards from the seat, meeting the floor behind the chair rather than underneath it. They give the chair a sense of movement, making it come alive as it appears to take a step backwards. Crafted in solid oak, with smoked oak or oiled oak finishes to choose from. The height is 75 cm, he is 56 cm wide and the seat height is 46 cm. Oaki is rich in detail, and loaded with character.
Northern is the new company name of Northern Lighting. Their success on the lighting market is so great that they decided to also add furniture to the collection. Northern Lighting was founded in Oslo in 2005, their designs are of Scandinavian simplicity and are affected by the ever-changing nature of the northern lights. Whether it’s hanging lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, table lamps, candlesticks with candles or tea lights, each of their products improves the quality of the light in your home. There now is a fresh collection of furniture added.
A graduate of the Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Stine continues to live and work in Norway’s west coast city of Bergen. Stine debuted on the Norwegian design scene just a few years ago, and since then, has produced a range of furniture and interior accessories that industry insiders describe as ground-breaking. Some say Stine remains true to the Nordic tradition of wood craftsmanship; others say she has set a new standard for the craft. Stine’s eye for colour is unique. She works with finishes that echo design trends, but more importantly, chooses tones that bring out the product’s personality. Stine’s spectacular Oaki chair for Northern is loaded with character, and available in finishes that highlight its sleek silhouette.
