Comfort, generosity and a timeless conceit. The armchairs Hold Tide & Sit Tide have been presented to the public in Milano! Based on the many enthusiastic reactions, Milan design week 2017 proved the perfect opportunity for Gelderland to introduce the Hold Tide & Sit Tide designed by FOKlab. With their curves and a water line inspired on natural phenomena, the armchairs have become an eye-catcher from every angle.
The Hold Tide & Sit Tide are materialized in two types of covering suggesting the water line, a clever nod to the shared Dutch background of the manufacturer and its designer: 'Robust materials, touched by nature can become more interesting. In the case of a water line a special dialogue is ongoing between the top and bottom. Sometimes there is a violent separation and sometimes it remains very subtle. This was a good starting point for the upholstery. The combination of fabrics provides many opportunities for customization and will allow them to fit into a wide array of interiors, from the project market to the home. At the same time they are a unique pair.’, enthuses Saskia Roelofs. She is responsible for the design together with Diederik Fokkema and Anne de Bruijn. ‘Attention has been paid to every detail and it goes without saying the chairs are very comfortable.’
The upholstered back rests on four wooden legs. The back extends to incorporate the top of the cocky legs as if the chair is wearing a pair of snug short trunks.
Until April 9 you can find us at the exhibition of Gelderland at Masterly: Palazzo Francesco Turati, Via Meravigli 7 in Milano
