ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Chair 02 is part of an ongoing series of Furniture Studies by Copenhagen-based Archival Studies. Constructed from standard 12mm interior-grade pine plywood, Chair 02 explores the use of scalable construction systems applied from furniture, to spatial design and architecture. The system was initiated, and continues to be, a development of how to build; assemble (sequence) a series of connections (joints), to provide structure and to organise space (in this case the human body).
Material and dimensions:
Laminated pine plywood.
41 x 45 x 75cm
Made to order.

All products by Copenhagen-based Archival Studies are born out of their larger spatial projects. For the case of Chair 02, this archetypal chair was designed and produced for a recent interior project; Interior 03, Kōnā – a Japanese-inspired eatery in Copenhagen. The chair forms part of a larger study into scalable construction systems produced from common, locally sourced materials. Made entirely of laminated interior-grade pine plywood, Chair 02 contains the texture and visual identity of the process in which it was produced. Following the approach to design as little as possible, Chair 02 was formed as part of a collection of products; from tables, stools, high chairs and more, that bring an artistic simplicity to products that aid and support the human body.
Architecture and fabrication office founded in 2018 by Benediktas Burdulis (LT/US), Emil Roman Frøge (DK), Jesse Yang (TW) and Jo Qiang (CH).
Archival Studies is an architecture and fabrication office that researches, develops, designs, and builds spatial objects and solutions of high artistic quality. Since 2018 they have been working their way up in scale: starting with furniture, then interior architecture, and finally, the architectural scale. Archival Studies are currently nearing the construction phase of the studio’s first house. As the name implies, they begin each process by understanding the already existing. This is done by looking for the essence of a space and making an attempt to emphasise that, or, as in the case of Chair 02, understanding and translating time-proven traditions through contemporary techniques. Essentially, Archival Studies attempts to design as little as possible, but to make use of what is already there. The work is guided further by a strong technical ability, sensibility, and the desire to build long-lasting spaces.
