klio 3-353

Studio Hannes Wettstein, 2014

Fusing traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology creates the sophisticated geometry of the heavy wooden chair. The back, which flows smoothly into the armrests, is bent from a 13.8 kilo piece of steamed wood - either beech or oak - on a machine specially designed according to our specifications.

klio feels contemporary and archetypical at the same time. Fusing traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology creates the sophisticated geometry of the heavy wooden chair. The back, which flows smoothly into the armrests, is bent from a 13.8 kilo piece of steamed wood - either beech or oak - on a machine specially designed according to our specifications. After three weeks in the dry kiln the backrest is milled into shape using state-of-the-art CNC technology and carefully polished by hand. The cleverly curved backrest contrasts with the body and its precise edges. horgenglarus' bespoke solid construction and the ergonomically shape seat creates a very comfortable armchair.
klio is full of character and brings a poetic element into horgenglarus' clear-cut collection, linking the two types of shapes. Apart from round organic shapes there are angular straight designs. klio merges both worlds and is available as a chair with short armrests and as an armchair with long armrests.
klio was first showcased on the Swiss Designers’ Saturday in November 2014. The poetic-mystic installation at Studio Hannes Wettstein received the "Designers’ Saturday Silver Award 2014."
