Unna is a minimalist design created by Stockholm-based designer Monica Förster for Zanat. Her work is characterized by a strong sense of pure form mixed with a curiosity for new materials and technology. In addition, she encompasses her work around the idea behind each project, encapsulating the form around shape, color, and detail.
Although the lounge chair is constructed of solid wood, soft and elegant lines create a sense of comfort and softness to the otherwise rigid structure. Zanat, renown for their intricate hand-carved wood patterns, utilizes their skills as expert craftsman and woodworkers to create the complex structure of the chair.
The modernized hand-carved patterns – made by applying Zanat’s century old and UNESCO world heritage nominee hand-carving techniques – add a special touch to the backrest of the chair. The carvings also provide a way to individualize each piece. To provide additional comfort, Unna lounge chair can be ordered with a removable leather cushion on the seat or fixed cushions on the backrest and the seat.
