Afteroom is a design company in Stockholm and a advocate of the traces of time. Founded and directed by Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei, the mission is simply to create beautiful products which will add value over time – design to grow old with. The inspiration derives from an intriguing interest of forms, senses, proportions, materials and cultures. The philosophy pivot around simplicity and honesty.
THE AFTEROOM CHAIR
We fell in love with the design because of its innovative simplicity and we launched the chair as a part of our SS13 collection. Since then it has proven to be just as great a success as we hoped. And now, for the AW14 collection we’re adding a new version: the Afteroom Chair with Padded Seat - provided with Kvadrat fabric.
Afteroom Chair was the result of deconstructing an item, piece by piece, with the purpose of obtaining an original design. The rounded details such as the seat and flexible back support, both in wood, contrast the solid steel frame. And when looking at the chair, it’s difficult to differentiate what is what, due to the designers’ attention to detail.
