K1 Chair

According to Marta Adamczyk, designer and founder of Moskou, the minimalist K1 chair is full of contrasts. From the side you see a slim, linear chair contour but the K1 chair has a solid singular frame that supports the seat and backrest, with the seat placed at a slight angle.

The frame is made of powder coated steel and the seat and backrest of oak wood. The clean, sharp lines of the steel frame gives a nice contrast with the natural grain of wood.

I love the refined details in the construction. Recesses in the seat and backrest make the frame blend in nicely. The seat and backrest are also subtly curved to improve the sitting comfort. The K1 chair reminds me of the Bauhaus movement — the pure form, the use of pure materials, the beauty of simplicity.

Moskou is a creative atelier operating in many different design-related fields. Like in the design of the K1 chair the aim is to create minimal, but only seemingly simple concepts, enriched with surprising details. Details hidden in construction or function.
