It turns out that Woud's Mono template makes for handsome bar and counter stools to be added to the series. Finnish designer Kasper Nyman took inspiration from a folded paper cone for the seat with its signature drop-shaped inset and it became a reality via new woodworking technology. In care-treated natural or black oak finish, the chair's thermoformable Grada veneer is an eco-friendly material derived from responsibly managed forests and does not contain formaldehyde or other harmful compounds.
Bar: 34.5" h x 17.25" w x 17.5" d (87.6x43.7x44.7cm)
Seat height: 29.5" (75cm)
Counter: 30.5" h x 16.75" w x 17" d (77.6x42.2x42.8cm)
Seat height: 25.5" (65cm)

“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.”
