Myrkr Chair
Design | Furniture

Old Norse for "darkness," Myrkr is conceived of light and shadow. Its design answers the modern call for material efficiency and the utilization of technology; however, the common contemporary desires for thinness and gloss have been replaced by volume and subtlety.

For Myrkr, modern fabrication techniques have been combined with traditional assembly methods. The lounge chair has no metal connections, but rather is made from a single laser-cut sheet of 12mm plywood and 144 dowels. It has been dipped in black aniline dye and finished with lacquer. Myrkr is light, very comfortable, and surprisingly stable.

Myrkr was designed as a work of art for the exhibition "The Page" which opened in the Guggenheim Gallery of Chapman University in 2010.
