Latko & Fragstein, A1

The project has been driven by the possibility of creation of self-adaptive solutions that address everyday needs in a modern and trendy way. Local products – tangible, accessible and visible – are found particularly authentic and sustainable by consumers.

The exhibited project is the first model of a series of design products in the portfolio of a newly established brand. The use of vanishing crafts is one of its unique features. Crafts typical for the Silesia region will be used in the first production series.

The ‘A1’ chair is graphic in its shape.  Its structure is sturdy but flexible enough to provide comfort of use. No complex technology is used in the manufacturing process. The materials include different alloys of metal, wood and leather. Its design is simple but can be modified depending on the materials used and user’s preferences.
