Bolt was originally part of the ‘Marginal notes’ exhibition held by Note design studio collective as a creative stunt in 2010. The concept of the exhibition was to produce in real life the doodles and ‘marginal notes’ that the members of the creative collective had in their notebooks, however crazy they might be.
The ‘BOLT’ presented in the exhibition was really 4 logs held together by a metal ring. It was not possible to seat on it and even the members of Note were skeptical about the possibility to make it a practical piece.
After numerous prototypes, La Chance artisans and Note design studio managed to create the final design of one of the signature pieces of the brand and won the prestigious Wallpaper design award the year following its release.
Note Design Studio is a collective of
architects, graphic & product designers established in Sweden in 2008. They presented their first furniture pieces in 2010 during the Marginal exhibition where the colorful and sculptural creations were to define Note’s identity and originated their career as one of the main player in nowadays Nordic design scene.
