RUBIE ARMCHAIR HIGH By Freifrau
The inspiration for Rubie, a design by Hauke Murken and Sven Hansen, was a quilted blanket casually thrown over a wooden chair. The resulting chair is simple and light, but also elegant due to the voluminous quilting. This interplay between frugality and opulence makes Rubie the ideal seat for a variety of everyday situations, from morning coffee through to a big celebratory dinner.
It was a quilted blanket slung casually over a wooden chair which gave the Berlin design duo Murken Hansen the inspiration for their Rubie model. One key design element are the elegant, flowing lines of the collection – there are no right angles – which give the model a contemporary look and finish it with finesse. The sophisticated interplay between its functional approach and its snug subtility characterises all Rubie models, allowing them to integrate effortlessly into a variety of everyday situations. The original chair, lounge couch, armchair, and bar stool with low or full-height armrests are all available with wire, steel, or wooden frames and feel like a natural part of almost any imaginable interior environment.
