"X" marks the spot. Or in the case of the Wendela Chair, the horizontal line on the back of the seat tells the story of this unconventional but supremely comfortable piece of furniture. For those in the know, the telltale line marks the leavings of the mold that shapes layers of beech wood to achieve the chair's distinctive ergonomic combination of seat flexibility and back support. But then things take a postmodern turn. Lightweight aluminum legs of an almost utilitarian nature are paired with the seat and the visible connecting ends harken back to traditional carpenters' joinery. Christoph Seyferth, the brains behind Serener, has a CV that spans fine arts, carpentry, and architecture, and he has done everything from build his own house to design eyewear for Adidas. He always likes his pieces to reference the integrity of thoughtful craftsmanship and celebrate the essence of forthright materials.
