Twenty Questions With Inoda + Sveje
“Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.”
What started as a "furniture love letter" from designer Kyoko Inoda to chair manufacturer Myazaki, detailing a hazy yet wishful dream to create something special, resulted in the DC09 Chair.
With design instructions and references like "wooden curves to mimic nature... like trees bending under heavy snow" we now see why Inoda + Sveje work so hard not only on their design process but on locating the perfect manufacturer for each of their designs.
This complete trust between manufacturer and designer results in pieces that are unrivaled in terms of quality and uniqueness, not necessarily identical or precise in measurements, but each telling the same original story of the design. This is something that for Inoda + Sveje can only be achieved for DC09 with Miyazaki.
Two years in the making, this is true slow design in every sense of the word, at Great Dane we feel very privlidged to be able to work with designers and manufacturers like Inoda + Sveje and Miyazaki and every day celebrate design like the DC09.
Thank you to everyone who came, drew pictures of chairs (congratulations to the winners!) and shared in the evening's procedings.
We look forward to inviting you to our homes again soon.
