Mr N

At the cutting edge of tailoring and carpentry

With the aesthetic DNA of Emma and the wood tailoring of Julius, Mr N is the heir who has joined the boardroom. A conference chair whose lively exterior gives character to the room, and whose inner ensures you are sitting comfortably, no matter what decisions are going to be made.

Extreme seams

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.

A sartorial inner

The inner stitching is discrete, yet distinct at the same time. The double seams create a well-tailored feel reminiscent of the inside of a suit. A detail that gives the chair a tailored inside, as well as fulfilling its practical purpose.

An aesthetic flow

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.

A less basic base

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.

For more comfortable meetings

Mr N is a chair for both the home and office, but is best suited to the conference room. Its visible wood and pronounced stitching make the setting warmer and more personal in rooms otherwise perceived as formal. With variations available, you can find a model for every room. For example, brown seams and leather would suit a classical boardroom with wooden panelling, while a coloured fabric would better suit creative meetings in a more modern environment.

»It’s one of the most traditional manufacturing processes there is: sewing together two materials. But using one hard and one soft material is completely new. It becomes more tactile.«
