Krusin Side Chair

Marc Krusin 2011

The Krusin Guest Seating Collection draws inspiration from traditional chair designs, but asserts itself with an industrialized craft aesthetic. Leaving no joint unresolved and no angle unconsidered, the Krusin Collection’s subtle elegance harmonizes with any setting.

Marc Krusin: “The chair has a particularly traditional framework — arm at a certain height, back at a certain height — and it has to do certain things, it has to be a robust chair. Within that framework, we worked tremendously on the proportion. Both proportion in the macro sense — the height of the arms with relation to the height of the back and the height of the seat, and also proportion on the micro scale —the angles of each rail of wood, you know, they’re not just square blocks.

“We spent a lot of time making changes that were not only aesthetic, but also structural and made a difference from an ease of fabrication point. It was actually very interesting, a lot of the time we’d be cutting something off, or taking an angle out, and what I found was that it actually gave something back to the design, it simplified it.

“I see it as being a design that can fit into a lot of scenarios. To me, there is something very noble about an object, a chair, whatever it may be, that sits within a space not shouting for your attention, but blending into it. The outcome is absolutely contemporary, but at the same time absolutely classic and absolutely timeless.”
