Description from &Tradition
The interplay between positive and negative space is central to in Between, Sami Kallio’’s chair design for &tradition. Its back and side panels provide a concrete shape and support, but forms are created equally by the gaps in between them. Kallio’s expertise in traditional woodworking craftsmanship is evident in the chair. in Between is produced using two classical techniques; compression molding (making it light and thin, yet strong) and woodturning (a technique that uses a lathe to achieve greater detail). Sami Kallio, with his solid grounding in the traditional woodworking techniques of Scandinavia and his eye for ingenious detail, has proven to be the ideal candidate to design the first wooden chair in &tradition’s stable. The upholstered seat is the perfect addition to the wooden chair: it embraces modern lifestyles and long, cosy dinners around the dining table, without compromising the chair’s light and elegant expression.
