Minuscule Chair by Cecilie Manz

The name Minuscule represents the informal and understated style for which the Scandinavians are known. Although the notes that accompany Manz’s sketches are sparse (much like the chair itself), she talks more in depth in the video. Manz describes the chair as a formal design, meant for informal situations. She likens its rounded shape to a beach stone, and points out that the rounded back provides a sphere, or protected space for the person sitting on it. It’s a beautifully designed piece, very, very thin, thanks to current technology, but with hand stitched upholstery that harkens back to Old World tailoring. Follow its conception below.
