Oskar / Timeless and for everyone.


Oskar is a chair that is manufactured out of one single metal sheet. Lasercuts around the edges allow you to bend it by hand to achieve the complex shape. It gets attached by welding spots on the inside, or if you don‘t have the possibility of welding, screws can be mounted. The shape is timeless and elegant. It communicates stability and dynamics at the same time.

Every person can download a free vector file for laser or CNC to produce it with your local manufacturer. There will be 2 versions available: one for welding and one for using screws.

Join the family by buying or creating your very own induvidual exemplar.
