The Neva lounge chair is a modern take on classic scandinavian artisanal lounge chairs from the mid 20th century, with a contemporary simplicity and cleanness. The challenge was to design a product that will be as simple as possible, without overthinking the form and overusing the technology. The Neva collection was greatly inspired by natural forms and the simplicity and elegance of wood in nature. Wood in essence is organic, and its forms soft. For years has wood been 'forced' into geometrical shapes, because this was the only way to accomplish larger volumes in serial production, and organic forms have been reserved for artisanal carpenters. Modern technologies such as cnc carving have made it possible for more complex forms to be introduced into serial production, and in the spirit of the Artisan company the production of the Neva collection is an elegant dance of modern technology and artisanal handcraft, which are unavoidably overlapped. The Neva Lounge collection is available in 6 different types of wood (oak, walnut, maple, elm, cherry and pear), with various natural finishes (oils and soaps), upholstered with either leather or fabric.
