The Lounge Chair by Max Lamb is a tough piece of furniture. Yet a hard-as-nails first impression soon gives way to a visual softness and physical comfort. Lamb explains that he began by investigating pine; how it is grown, sawn, received, sold. His approach thereafter was logical; choosing off-the-shelf sections of wood and piecing them together to create a large surface area and logical form. Material is scooped out of the building block-like forms to make two ample convex recesses, revealing the characterful grain within. The result is a strikingly singular chair ‘mathematical in its approach and transparent in its construction’ says Lamb.
Made in Finland of Finnish pine.
All Vaarnii products are locally made by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests, PEFC certified and slow grown.
Pine is very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
Although our pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
Our raw material is hand selected for maximum quality. Because of the nature of wood, each product has a unique grain, colour, and pattern.
