Design with respect for the Scandinavian values
An eye for aesthetics and comfort
The Danish design duo Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen have a great deal of respect for Scandinavian values and expression when designing – but at the same time they never forget the importance of comfort.
With their Eyes barstool with built-in armrests and legs of steel Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen manage to combine two obvious contrasts in harmony. The long lean legs and the hefty upholstery top in many ways are each other’s opposites – but in this design the two are combined in a most elegant way, leading to a design that never tires the eye.
Comfortable for hours
A barstool as comfortable as the Eyes barstool is a rare find. Its high level of comfort makes it ideal to use in your home.
The vision of Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen is to create furniture with long duration, which stimulates a healthy development for people and their surroundings. In our design, the material is an important inspiration. We prefer to work in materials that have clear rules and restrictions, which may be readable in their final form. Materials create resistance. Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen believe that design is created at the intersection of passion and science, and always base their work on high standards of collaboration, process and product, where knowledge and innovation are basic resources.
