The Neva lounge chair is a modern take on
classic scandinavian artisanal lounge chairs
from the mid 20th century, with a
contemporary simplicity and cleanness.
The challenge was to design a product that
will be as simple as possible, without
overthinking the form and overusing the
technology.

The Neva collection was greatly inspired by
natural forms and the simplicity and elegance
of wood in nature. Wood in essence is organic,
and its forms soft. For years has wood been
'forced' into geometrical shapes, because this
was the only way to accomplish larger volumes
in serial production, and organic forms have
been reserved for artisanal carpenters.
Modern technologies such as cnc carving have
made it possible for more complex forms to be
introduced into serial production, and in the
spirit of the Artisan company the production
of the Neva collection is an elegant dance of
modern technology and artisanal handcraft,
which are unavoidably overlapped.

The Neva Lounge collection is available in 6
different types of wood (oak, walnut, maple,
elm, cherry and pear), with various natural
finishes (oils and soaps), upholstered with
either leather or fabric.
