As the name implies, Handvärk's spare bar stool strives to be a perfect example of the genre. Designed by Danish studio Says Who, its Paragon brilliantly exemplifies the idea of "basic"—but in ultra-refined form—given the lithe black-steel base with a simple but eloquent X-support. The curving slice of a solid-oak seat comes in a choice of natural, smoked or black finishes to further accentuate the marvel of its clean, elegant lines and discerning presence.

Aesthetic sustainability. This is the Handvärk way.
Designer and architect Emil Thorup founded the company in 2015 with an emphasis on handcrafted furnishings, stripped down to their functional and graphic essence, and made of luxe materials to stand the length of time.
The Nordic DNA notwithstanding, the brand’s hallmark are the brackets repeated at least 8-12 times per piece. So, too, are the materials: in contrast to the penchant for wood by his fellow Danes, Emil focuses on premium steel, brass, iron, marble and leather. From the Modular Sofa with Chaise to the spare Console or Studio Floor Lamp, these basics are anything but.
