REFINED
SIMPLICITY:
LOFT CHAIR

 

Inspired by life’s everyday requirements, designer Thomas Bentzen’s Loft Chair exemplifies honest design. Get a look inside his Copenhagen studio and hear more about the design here.

 
 

“My work is driven by a desire to create meaningful design,” says designer Thomas Bentzen, standing in his Copenhagen studio, surrounded by models, sketches and fragments of furniture. Taking a humanist approach to design, there's a curious yet simple feel to his work. Touching on his process, he notes: “The design is never complete—there’ll always be aspects that you want to change but there comes a time where you simply have to let go.”

 

PLAY

 

With Loft, Bentzen wanted to marry the archetypical forms of Scandinavian design with an industrial approach. This led to the chair featuring a play of complementing contrasts where the soft wood seat and back is placed atop a base in sturdy steel.

 
 
 

Looking towards his past work for Muuto, Bentzen says: “To me, the most vital thing is to make good design that is rooted in simplicity, functionality, rationality and comfort—it is in these elements that the Loft Chair found its starting point.”
