Unam Collection

Designer Sebastian Herkner created a collection of lounge chairs in solid wood, inspired by the pragmatic projects by Pierre Jeanneret in India. The Unam series features clean lines and is made up of simple wooden elements that recall traditional wooden constructions. It is available in both woven and covored finishes.

The coupling of materials and proportions emanate a sense of protection and safety. The combination between traditional elements such as the curve and the twine and their articulation into a modern design make Unam an interesting and extremely readable collection of furniture.

Unam is a comfortable seat available in the Lounge version and in the new Dining version with arms or without, made of solid wood for the contract sector. Inspired by Jean Jeanneret’s pragmatic projects in India, Herkner has transferred these concepts in their own design language.

The structure of the chair is made up of simple wooden elements that recall traditional wooden constructions. The two arched elements that serve as front legs and the arms say a lot about its design and character. This latter is available in two finishes, one woven and one covered. The combination between traditional elements such as the curve and the twine and their articulation into a modern design make Unam an interesting and extremely readable piece of furniture.
