ARTLESS Allison Chair is the union of two independent yet interrelated systems: composed of a super comfortable seat on top of an incredibly sturdy base.
The armchair design was conceived to be low yet enveloping with the back at the perfect height to be comfortable while maintaining a continuous line with the armrest's profile. The back vents allow the armrests and back to have minimal movement thus augmenting comfort. The reversible memory foam cushion brings padded comfort to the dinner table—something usually associated with lounge chairs.
About Scholten & Baijings
Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings established their eponymous studio Scholten & Baijings in Amsterdam in 2000. They have since designed a range of interior products for clients including 1616 / Arita Japan, Established & Sons, Thomas Eyck, HAY, Georg Jensen, Karimoku New Standard, and Pastoe, as well as a concept car for MINI. Their work is characterized by minimal forms, simple geometric patterning, and an acute sense of color. They are now widely regarded as of one of the most exciting, innovative, and dynamic design duos in Europe.
What distinguishes Scholten and Baijings as designers is how they answer the question of what is beautiful. Few designers working today better understand and more ably harness the effect of color. The designers have accounted for this by creating patterns with expansive repeats that offer a unique result in every application. The subtle coloration of the program is also, unsurprisingly, intentional. “When we design a quilt or pillow we can add spicy hues or even fluorescent colors,” Baijings notes. “But furniture has a long life and upholstery should therefore have a timeless quality.”
