Designers: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec
HAY has invited Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to design a new collection of furniture for the redesigned University of Copenhagen (KUA). The collection includes a wooden chair, a bar stool and several tables.
The starting point for this series is an old university chair, architect Bernt Pedersen’s trestle chair. This chair is a simple and beautiful chair with an uncomplicated identity. The Bouroullec interpretation has upheld the original chair typology (trestle chair) and sought to maintain the compelling simplicity of the original chair.
The aim was to create a range of educational furniture which in form and identity has a clear dating and which in a compelling manner uncovers the current functional needs of a university. It has also been the aspiration to distance the collection from the slightly institutional expression of the original chair and create furniture with greater originality and a more domestic expression.
