EX 1 Chair - Teak

EX 1 Chair - Teak

The upholstered EX 1 teak chair makes life even more comfortable. As we love enduring, quality materials, we have used pure Belgian linen that ages naturally like solid wood.

Design by:

Wood is the material of the past and the future—it’s an honest and precious material that should be respected. Having almost unlimited possibilities, it could be sculpted, bent, turned and reassembled in almost any shape we can think of. Every day, its boundaries are pushed further. As it is a long-lasting, sustainable material, any design incorporating the material should be timeless but created using techniques that are relevant to the period in which they were made!

Alain van Havre is Ethnicraft’s in-house designer. The complexity of things has always intrigued him, which led him to study product development at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. To him, all design embodies the same duality: the aim is to create a timeless product, yet with a hint to the specific moment in which it is made.
