Naked Chair

OutofStock is a cross-continental design collective born in Stockholm and spread out around the globe (Buenos Aires, Singapore, Barcelona); this heterogeneous creative group has conceived the refreshingly clever Naked chair.
Naked Chair

The simple yet fascinating concept behind Naked is to expose the supporting structure, generally hidden in most chairs, and make that structure the absolute protagonist of the object's beauty and intelligence. 
The designers have achieved this using two interlocking pieces of solid beech and six small pieces of bent steel sheet, which once mounted complete the rigidity of the construction and provide the needed seat and backrest surfaces. 
The result is a refreshing, unique looking chair that is not only beautiful but also extremely efficient: simple and low-cost to produce, easy to transport as it packs in a flat volume-less box and is rather lightweight, and fast to assemble as the pieces are fastened together using standard wing nuts.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
