Furniture brand Blå Station introduced in 2013 the chair Dent, as a shell chair in moulded plywood. The Swedish company has now launched the upholstered version, Dent Dressed, first revealed at the 2014 Orgatec. Soft and comfortable to sit on and interesting in its expression, it fits all the under-frames of the original Dent.
The O4i design-team has managed to crack the code of how to press an ordinary veneer into a three-dimensional form. By thinking in a completely different way and by combining the curved paper theory with the wrinkled paper theory they have made what has been considered impossible, possible.
The three-dimensional chair challenges the ideas of how chairs are made by transforming a hard, flat surface into a shell that comfortably moulds on the human body. The upholstered seatshell is made out of layer-glued compression-moulded veneer covered in fabric. The frame is available in lacquered steel or green chrome, and chrome III.
