MIRR | chair | Lucas Schnaidt | 2021

MIRR is the result of meticulous processing and refining. The search for the perfect dining chair is based on the armchair style, which does not compromise on comfort. The chair owes its elegance to the seemingly elongated chair legs fixed in a frame where the upholstered seat has been extravagantly lowered. The resulting proportions are absolutely unique in this chair segment.

ONN | table | Lucas Schnaidt | 2021

The majestic solid table top made of fabulous, 4.5 cm thick, high-grade solid wood has an air of undeniable grandeur. The proportions of the four turned table legs made of solid wood were developed and refined over an extended period of time, and the generous curves on the table top’s corners were crafted to marry up precisely with the radius of the table legs. However, the functional genius of this table is tucked away on the underside of the table top. The four table legs can be attached in two different positions on each model: in the centre of the table or along the outer edge in the corners.

REFUGE TONNEAU 21 | pavillon | HEAD – Genève | 2021

REFUGE TONNEAU 21 was developed as a tribute to the iconic Refuge Tonneau by Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret from 1938. The pavilion serves as a place to meet on the schools campus. Central stairs are placed inside a colourful interior with a playful pattern of circular windows. Solar panels on the roof run a ceiling light installation displaying the names Charlotte and Pierre. The installation was shown at the OPEN HOUSE exhibition in Genthod/ Geneva in 2021.
