Unnaturally Natural

Iron and wood. It’s nature’s most popular and maybe most unnatural combination. The two materials are rarely found within a thousand mile radius of each other, yet they’ve made up a striking partnership every time thousands of designers have chosen to put the two together.

At least that was the thinking when Per Aagard Jepsen, the Danish designer behind the Avanti Family, sat down to create what is now two Scandinavian design classics. The star of the show here isn’t the designs themselves, because, in true Sacandi fashion, there’s not much to it. The star is the materials that make the design and the solidity with which they’re put together.

The Avanti Family consists of the Avanti Chair and the Avanti Bar Stool, both of which stay true to the Per Aargards insistence on letting just two materials speak more than many ever could.

When Per Aagaard Jepsen designed the Avanti chair, his intention was to create a chair with a light and modern expression. With its simple style and clean lines, the chair is suitable for both public and private areas.

The Avanti Chair is designed by Per Aagard Jepsen, and if it isn’t obvious just by looking at it, we can confirm to you that Jepsen is Scandinavian. More specifically, Danish, which is why you’re looking at such a simple design. Crafted in such a solid way. Using so few materials.

‘Cause there’s only two at play here; steel and wood. No padding, no leather detailing, no nothing – just a beautiful piece of bent veneer that’s been amplified and enlarged so it can contrast the thin, elegant steel base it sits on. The big backrest serves up unbeatable comfort for its kind, and the airy foundation makes it easy to place and handle.

The Avanti Chair will serve you well. Avanti Chairs, plural, will serve you better. Their sleek facade and light expression make them neatly clutter resistant around both dining tables and executive meeting rooms. Tweak both colours, wood sorts and metals to your heart’s desire and see why for yourself.
