Kati Meyer-Brühl launched two additional, unannounced new designs at the imm cologne 2016
Besides the attitude sofa, Kati Meyer-Brühl also presented the chairs les copains harp and the occasional table hammersvik in Cologne.
The hammersvik table is an oasis of calm yet also – thanks to the tree rings and its natural shape – a very decorative element. It evokes nature and its cycles, and goes well with rural as well as urban environments. Massive beech tree trunks, with the characteristic cracks that result from the drying process, have been cut into slices, debarked, planed and sanded, then whitewashed. The beech slice rests on six graceful, tapered legs that have also been whitewashed. The wood used was sourced from certified, sustainably managed forests. The existing cracks may become wider as time goes by.
The string chair les copains harp – in the low version – combines a graceful galvanised frame with a body woven from fine, taut woven stainless steel wires. It is not only surprisingly comfortable to sit on but also looks airy, almost as light as a feather, an impression heightened by the silvery, shiny wires. On request, the low and medium chairs are also available with wool felt covered armrests. Optional loose cushions and back- and armrest pads add comfort or are additional design elements.
