Arflex Japan, originally founded in 1969 as sole distributor of the Italian mother brand Arflex, is also producer/manufacturer of an exclusive furniture collection for the Japanese market. The company´s distinguished cultural background inspired me to create a radically contemporary chair for Japan which combines values of both traditional craftsmanship and modernist aesthetics. DAHLEM is characterized by a strictly geometric language, reminiscent of the beautiful chairs by Gerrit Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh or Frank Lloyd Wright. The chair´s construction is legible in all its parts. Lightness and economy are prime motivations for the way it was designed. The chair, which is exclusively available in Japan is made in walnut or oak, the seat is upholstered in soft leather or fabric.
