The stitching along the back is not only an aesthetic detail, but the foundation of the model’s construction. The moulded back is joined to the upholstery with extreme seams. Without pre-drilled holes, the six-millimetre thick wood plate is literally sewn together with the upholstery by a sewing machine. The result is a join that doesn’t need glue or staples, and a chair back that exudes craftsmanship.
At the base of the back, where the wood plate meets the upholstered seat frame, a visible contrast is created between soft and hard to make the design more dashing. In addition, the seat frame is bevelled underneath to create an aesthetic flow, and a feeling of disappearing under the chair.
Mr N’s star base is specially designed as a natural extension of the chair. The legs are welded to the tube-shaped fixture, allowing height adjustment. While traditional bases are usually straight with hard angles, here we see softer lines and a more organic form. The base is interchangeable; one with four legs and glides, and one with five legs and casters.
