Wood by Åke Axelsson

Åke Axelsson has presented this chair Wood for Garnas at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010. He seems inspired by Thonet in several of his designs.

Wood is made from beech from sustainable managed forests. The components are made with a traditional steaming technique that uses a minimal amount of wood. Wood is packed disassembled in a recyclable cardboard in order to reduce transport volume and thereby carbon dioxide emissions. Wood is lightweight and comfortable and meets the highest requirements for both product durability and environmental sustainability. Wood is available in untreated or waxed beech, or with a eco labeled stain in black, white, dark brown or red. The back can be upholstered in a choice of vegetable tanned leather, sheepskin or cotton canvas.”
