A Chair Born From Exploring the Cube

Designer Per Jensen spent time studying the shape of a cube and wondering what kind of chair could be designed from it. The first exploration led to Anna Marta, a pine chair with angled slats that present a graphic pattern.


Wanting to reduce the visual weight of a typical cube, Jensen chose wooden slats to break up the heaviness of a solid design. The resulting form creates linear patterns from every angle making it just as much sculptural as it is functional. We’re looking forward to seeing more from him.
