This café-style armchair typifies the Ray collection’s contemporary update of outdoor furnishings. Crafted in lightweight but sturdy aluminum, it comes in an array of smart colors with a matte and weather-resistant powder-coated surface. Designers Henrik and Rolff engineer a comfortably contoured seat and backrest with grooved detail that allows rays of the sun to shine through, creating shadow play on the ground beneath on bright days, and permitting wind to pass through and rain to drain in a downpour.
31.25" h x 20" w x 21.5" d (79.4x51.2x55cm)
Seat height: 18" (45.5cm)
Optional seat pad available separately
“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
