Unna is a stackable dining chair with soft, minimalistic, yet humanistic expression. The lightweight structure represents the highest end of wood craftsmanship and its elegant joints support a sturdy seat and backrest. The chair can be customized by applying Zanat’s exquisite carving techniques. Finding inspiration in nature, we have modernised the carvings, preserving the genuine technique.

For the exhibition Beyond Black at JUS, during the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017, Monica Förster Design Studio designed a special edition of the Unna chair in black, with Sami-inspired embroidery on cushions. This embroidery has a reflective almost glowing surface which creates a contemporary expression to the project.
