The Maximus easy chair is carved from solid ash wood using CNC routers. Its seat, back and legs are made as separate pieces although their joins are hardly visible, giving the chair a continuous form.
Blå Station describes Maximus as a “playful departure” from rational furniture styles.
The brand approached Ansander after his graduation show at the Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, where he exhibited the chair as part of his master’s degree project.
Ansander worked with a small sawmill just outside of Stockholm to realise the project, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technologies.
“I have been inspired by theories claiming that we in the future, must find alternatives to global mass production and instead locally manufacture our everyday objects,” Ansander said.
Maximus is available with both clear and coloured lacquer finishes.
