A tribute to form itself, Legald wanted to create a shell chair with a more unified look, that would stand as one cohesive unit. Featuring a soft silhouette that merges with a rigid Nordic wooden frame, its cohesive and unified appearance combined with a natural integration between seat and base has been achieved through the use of an innovative and sleek mounting solution.
With every unique detail being carefully deliberated, the Form Bar Stool is the perfect addition to any bar or kitchen counter, with the legs appearing to be almost growing out of the seat.
Simon Legald studies design at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and will graduate in the Summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
