use different “line weights” to emphasize the graphic character

the HHID team constructs the stool and low chair from bent and welded steel rods. the integrated posts are available in two different thicknesses; the taller ones make up the silhouette while the thinner ones create the seating surface. according to the designers, ‘the use of primary and secondary line weights allowed for a graphic hierarchy, while making the pieces strong and light. a uniform and textured powder coat is then applied to each piece of furniture to celebrate the graphic character of the KNTR collection.

create smooth and controlled surfaces

additionally, the stool’s low back functions as a handle that contributes to its accessible appearance while emphasizing its mobile nature and allowing for effortless stacking. the coffee table, on the other hand, is made from coated maple wood panels laminated with a PU textile. such a choice of assembly offers a vertical structure while allowing the top to fold naturally on the base. “Informed by the shapes of nature, the seats and table share soft yet controlled surfaces created from linear materials”, concludes HHID.
