Beam armchair is a minimalist design created by the Netherlands based studio Oato in collaboration with woodworking company Kuperus & Gardenier. The piece has been inspired by stacked beam structures used in many cultures. Designers explain their process:
All the structural elements are squared, like wooden construction beams. All parts that involve sitting or touching are rounded and have different profiles accenting their own character and role.
The price of the chair is quite approachable, especially considering the fact that it is mostly handmade. Another important achievement by the designers... The piece is made of oak with natural oil finish.
