MILAN 2008: TRØKK16 Frøy Chair
TRØKK16 are turning heads left and right at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair with an elegantly engineered line of prototypes including the graceful Frøy Chair. A modern update on the side chair, it makes smart use of natural materials with a slim design that seamlessly joins ergonomic angles with distinctive stature. A set of elegantly tapered back legs bloom into the chair’s split backrest that is made from laminated wood. Frøy is composed of solid ash and addresses the modern model of “good design” that is beautiful and built to last.
You may remember TRØKK16 from our coverage of their eco-friendly Emir Chair at Haute Green 2007. This ascendant house of Norwegian designers have been making waves lately with their innovative designs that perfectly balance beauty with an eco-friendly bottom line. Their current collection will also be featured in Stavanger’s upcoming World of Folk exhibition, which will show “how Nordic artisans and designers are engaged in a new folkloric language and a new interpretation of the design of tomorrow”.
