Description:

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 archetypical shaker chair, but with a modern comfort and a clean- cut, geometrical and minimalistic appearance.

Danish furniture artist/designer Rasmus Baekkel Fex and Brdr. Kruger have reinterpreted the design of the shaker chair in a close cooperation and shared aspiration to explore archetypes and materials with an open mind.

The outcome is a modern ascetic take on tradition, where wooden craftsmanship and woodturning skills are contrasted with a seat constructed from industrial polyester webbing or natural paper cord, hand-weaved to create a bespoke geometrical pattern. The seat changes character as it reflects the surrounding light while the embracing wooden backrest invites you to sit down and enjoy the chair for its simplest function and comfort.

While the F chair has found its final expression in the workshop of Brdr. Kruger, the design originates from an artistic exhibition in Milan in 2013, where Rasmus Baekkel Fex was invited to participate in the Danish Mindcraft exhibition showcasing experimental and innovative works. Fex's contribution arose from a sheer fascination with the simple, traditional shaker chair.
“I work in the borderland between art and design, form and function, and Jonas recognized the values and philosophy of Brdr. Kruger in my aspiration to explore archetypes and materials with an open mind. Together we have reinterpreted the design of the shaker chair, balancing tradition and modernity, and turning a conceptual artwork into a comfortable, usable chair. The F chair is a celebration of old crafts. It is born from innumerable prototypes and hands-on work at Brdr. Kruger’s workshop, where we fine-tuned the simple construction to gain the right expression and feel.” - Rasmus Baekkel Fex, Designer

Materials:

Oak or Ash Frame
Seat in Paper Cord: The weaving is a traditional Danish triangle shape used for generations. Since cords need to overlap it is not possible to make four triangles that meet exactly in the middle – they will always overlap. Also, the four lines going from the edge of the seat to the center will never be 100 pct. straight. This is a handmade product and part of the character of the chair.
