It is easy to forget the stool is made from solid wood, as ergonomics and aesthetics work harmoniously together.
BAR began its inception after the success of the minimalist design of the DC09 chair, a collaboration between designers, Inoda + Sveje and Japanese manufacturer Miyazaki Chair Factory.
The most characteristic part of “BAR” is its seat, which has been shaved, resulting in smooth sculptural and organic lines while still following human ergonomics. The stool has only two surfaces, one inside and one outside, meeting in a very sharp edge. The footrest is made from a brass casting mould, which creates a three-dimensional form, perfectly connecting to the wooden legs’ surface.
With our Scandinavian artisans in high demand, Great Dane’s new Reserve Collection ensures an exclusive supply of our most coveted designs. These products are handcrafted after ordering.
Inoda + Sveje is a design duo comprising Kyoko Inoda, born in Osaka in 1971, and Nils Sveje, born in Denmark in 1969. Inoda studied architectural design at ISAD in Milan. Sveje graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture.
