A new bar stool that combines traditional saddle making with contemporary design has been added to Danish furniture maker Overgaard & Dyrman’s award-winning Wire collection including the World Interiors News Award 2014.
A bar stool has joined the Overgaard & Dyrman Wire Collection, which was launched in 2014 and already counts a dining chair, a lounge chair, a lounge sofa and a coffee table. The bar stool is a fusion of craftsmanship with references to traditional saddle making and metal work and is created with respect for genuine materials and their properties and to make them complement each other beautifully.
“With the Wire Bar Stool we aimed for a piece of furniture that works beautifully standing alone, but yet with strong references to the rest of the Wire Collection. We wanted to make an elegant stool that substantiates the idea of using traditional saddle making techniques combined with a cleverly thought steel structure. We like the idea of keeping structural elements and different materials separated and to focus on how graceful interactions between materials and individual parts can be achieved.“ - says Jasper Overgaard, co-founder and Creative Director at O&D.
The upholstery for the bar stool and the Wire Collection in general is crafted by using traditional techniques known from saddle making where thick full-grain tooling leather, a layer of foam and a soft aniline leather is sewn together to gain stiffness and comfort to the saddle. Like the saddle the footrest in solid wood and its softly curved cigar shape provide a good comfortable detail to the chair and complement the steel frame beautifully.
The Wire Bar Stool comes in two heights, a counter height and a bar height.
It comes with a satin chrome plated steel finish or in a matte black powder coated steel finish with various types of leather and wood.
