Each chair has been reinterpreted in a range of five earthy colours chosen by Crawford to “give a fresh perspective to the collection”.
Included in the collection are the seminal CH24 chair, also known as the Wishbone Chair, alongside the CH22 lounge chair, CH23 dining chair, CH25 lounge chair and CH26 dining chair.
They are each available with a translucent water-based paint finish that was chosen by Crawford to add depth to the chairs’ classic forms.
“The environmentally friendly, water-based colours all have a slightly transparent finish, which allows the chairs’ original oak wood grain to shine through, creating a nuanced sense of colour and texture,” said the brand.
“The muddy, painterly tones nod to the raw beauty of the Nordic landscape and they are intended to work both as a group and independently.”
Crawford discussed the collection during a livestreamed talk as a part of Carl Hansen & Son’s virtual Open House event earlier this month. The programme also included five other talks, with speakers including MoMA curator Paola Antonelli and Kvadrat CEO Anders Byriel.
