The popular Edith chair will soon be joined by a delightful cousin – the Edith stool – we take a look at the evolution of the Edith family and its driving principles.
October 8th, 2015
The Edith collection of chairs by Trabà is soon to be joined by a new member of the family, the Edith stool. The latest addition to the range follows the same paired back and refined design principles as the original, adding a new layer of versatility to the product.
The simplicity of form on the Edith should not belie its thoughtful and considered construction. Made out of timber, the chair curves in all the right places, with elegant tapering at the legs.
The sweeping backrest seen on the chair has been carried into the stool design, along with the same natural material palette, ensuring a sense of paired back but necessary design decisions. Warmth, tactility comes through in the material selection.
Functional and sincere in nature, the classic Scandinavian design of Edith is perfect for spaces large and small. Both the chair and the stool would be right at home in a mixed variety of spaces, its clean lines suitable in the latest café hotspot, or refurbished office breakout area.
Quality is another feature that carries from the chair to the stool version. Through expert craftsmanship and careful construction techniques, the Edith is built to last.
The Edith chair, and now the stool, is a collaboration between Trabà and renowned Italian architect Massimo Broglio. Massimo works across a range of disciplines and scales – always bringing an innovative and pragmatic outcome to his designs. Another product that highlights this wonderful relationship is the Niels table. The Niels table pairs perfectly with the Edith chair and feature a clever deconstructed central structure. Both constructed out of timber and available in a range of colours, as a designer you can create just the right look for your project.
Massimo’s ongoing collaboration with Trabà is built on a foundation that both share – a true understanding and appreciation of quality, artisanal work.
