Unam Chair by Sebastian Herkner



Sebastian Herkner’s Unam is a comfortable lounge chair in solid wood. Inspired by the pragmatic projects of Swiss architect Pierre Jeanneret in India, Herkner has transferred these concepts into his own design language.

“The product features clean lines and authentic materials and it is based on traditional manual ability and aesthetics revisited with a contemporary spirit.” says Herkner. “The Unam chair is a place in which one can relax and forget about all external influences. The coupling of materials and proportions emanate a sense of protection and safety.”

The structure of the chair is composed of simple wooden elements that recall traditional wooden constructions with two arched elements that intersect serving as front legs and arms. “The combination between traditional elements such as the curve and the twine and their articulation into a modern design make Unam an interesting and extremely readable piece of furniture.”
