Contour Chair and Table, Ondarreta, 2016; design UN Studio

Contour is a table and chair combination that plays with functional ergonomic surfaces that dynamically transform into structural frame components. In the Contour chair smooth transitions are made between sharp angles and soft curves. All sides of the chair are equally important and interconnected with one another.

For Contour, UNStudio and Ondarreta have fused traditional wood bending techniques and technical know-how with contemporary design. The table and chair are intended for a variety of uses within functional environments; to bring people together in educational, hospitality, conference and dining environments. Adaptable to the different needs of the given setting, the chair is stackable and durable and comes with or without armrests.

UNStudio practices architecture as a discipline that possesses a wide range of scales and dimensions. Thus, the house, the department store, the railway station, the museum, the temporary installation and the theoretical manifesto are all intricate parts of our oeuvre. In recent years, the sofa, the chair, and the table have become integral parts of that broad architectural palette also. The same enquiring and experimental attitude with which UNStudio approaches architecture is also employed in the designing of products. Product design at UNStudio is notalways specifically bound to an architectural project, although designs can be expressions of parallel ideas and concepts. Designing furniture in the classical tradition of the Architect/Designer means that UNStudio’s designs are related to architecture functionally and thematically. UNStudio’s approach to product design is based on the combination of a deep understanding and working knowledge of materials and innovative technology with distinctive spatial design strategies.
