Established in 2011, Resident is a progressive design and manufacturing company based in New Zealand. Specialising in Furniture and Lighting, Resident draws from the eclectic inspirations of the world's best upcoming and established designers to produce a clean, crafted, functional and thought provoking collection.
Simon James, co-founder and creative director of Resident, has designed the Pick Up Sticks chair, part of their new collection which debuted at Milan Design Week 2014. Pick Up Sticks was born out of the need for a comfortable armchair whose upholstered component is produced separately and at a short lead-time. The upholstered seat cushion can in fact be taken off the chair for versatility.
Ideal for commercial or residential use, Pick Up Sticks celebrates a solid oak frame, which exhibits refined profile details throughout. Available in a Black stain or Natural finish, the frame stacks three high for easy transportation and storage. Its lightweight look and feel provides a balance and contrast between the soft and hard surfaces.
