freistil 149 at the Cologne furniture fair: The miraculous sanctuary.

15.01.2018 / Cologne/ Nagold. In a world of sensory overload, the new freistil 149 chair provides the perfect shelter from the storm. The modern retro-wing chair designed by Anders Nörgaard turns the chaotic into the serene.

What a feat: freistil has taken a cosy beast from the past and turned it into a stylish haven of the present. Of course the model 149 is elegantly designed and is unlike anything you may have seen in your grandparents’ living room. The size of its base alone has been chosen to reflect our modern world. But everything else? It’s virtually all vintage wing chair, the very stuff of that living room of yesteryear. The hands of master artisans have meticulously melded the back of the chair to the seat. The conservative wings reach out to create a comforting and sheltering retreat.

These are exactly the features that turn the freistil 149 into a chair people love to gaze at and, most of all, settle into: a blend of old and new furniture history that takes on even more character when just the right fabric is used. freistil draws on the sweeping range of domestic manufacturing practices and breathes new life into a nearly forgotten art of upholstery. Decorative patterns, or rapports, shroud the sculptural body of the chair 149. It’s a very pleasant sight to see in the special edition, which is covered in the fabrics of Berlin designer Dawid Tomaszewski. Your grandmother would love it.
