Karm Sofa by Studio David Thulstrup
The Karm sofa was originally developed as a bespoke piece for the lounge of the new noma restaurant in Copenhagen and is now available as part of Brdr. Krüger’s core furniture collection.
Brdr. KrügerThe word ‘karm’ means ‘frame’ in Danish, referring to the inside of a window frame. The name of the piece also references the framework of the sofa, and suggests the idea of dwelling in a deep window frame, striking a balance between structure and human presence.
Made from specially selected thick and characteristic large oak planks, the sofa’s nostalgic design evokes a sense of honesty and simplicity. The clean, sharp and modern lines of the piece make it reminiscent of 1970s Danish design.
JARI by OEO Studio
JARI is a collection of dining chairs and tables that embodies the shared cultural values of Japanese and Danish design, defined as an appreciation of traditional craftsmanship and a close connection with nature. Named after a Japanese word meaning ‘pebbles’, JARI draws inspiration from natural beach stones that have been slowly rounded by lapping waves over centuries.
Brdr. KrügerBoth the JARI chair and table are born from a mix of modern and traditional methods and specialized joinery, resulting in a strong and durable chair design. JARI’s smooth seat is upholstered in quality leather and is complemented by an all-in-one solid ash backrest, with skillful joinery detailing.
Brdr. KrügerThe JARI table in solid ash comes in two subtle, asymmetric, organic shapes. The table top shape optimizes the volume of the design by reducing its ends and shifting the balance towards the center for a more intimate shared dining experience and a sense of social presence. Each table features deep, double-rounded soft edges, offering a floating appearance and representing a tactile connection to nature. The joinery and seamless finish of the JARI table is achieved without the need for nails or screws.
All pieces from the JARI collection are made using local solid white ash wood, selected for its purity and beautiful natural grain. The available hues are dyed by hand using a homemade recipe of pigments of rocks and minerals, enhancing the natural grains and nuances.
Pauline Bar Stool with backrest by OEO Studio
The Danish design brand worked closely with OEO Studio to create a new offering for 2019 of the celebrated Pauline bar stool first created two years ago. With its slim silhouette and distinct personality, the Pauline bar stool reflects the spirit of the mid-century Danish Modern movement.
Brdr. KrügerNamed after the wife of Ernst Krüger – second generation of Brdr. Krüger – Pauline was created when Brdr. Krüger became aware of the need in the market for a bar stool with a smaller footprint taking up as little space as possible. The design language is a continuation of the original piece with both new steel frame and backrest taking centre stage. The new design has an inherently international feel and it is a timeless piece for both domestic or hospitality use.
F Chair with armrests by Rasmus Bækkel Fex
The F chair is a contemporary shaker chair based on the virtues of traditional craft. It carries on the folksy simplicity and honesty of the archetype, but with a modern appearance and improved comfort. For Stockholm Furniture Fair, the F chair will be presented in a new armchair edition. Together with Jonas Krüger, Rasmus Bækkel Fex worked within the Brdr. Krüger workshop to enhance the design and expression of the series.
Brdr. KrügerThe armrests have been designed to be slightly shorter than most armrests in order to get closer to the table. The characteristic seat weaving pattern, is a fusion of American and Danish traditions, taken forward with colorful polyester bands, and complementary monochrome wood treatments. Brdr. Krüger looked closely at the colours of past Scandinavian classic folklore and selected a color scheme that is both contemporary yet reflects the past. The name ‘F’ refers to the chair’s ‘Folksy’ origins, the designer’s surname ‘Fex’, and a typographic interpretation of the chair’s profile and characteristic seat pattern.
