Designed in 2016 with the hospitality industry in mind, the LARA CHAIR’s balanced and unassuming appearance makes it well-suited to both domestic and commercial dining spaces. Well-proportioned and durable, the chair’s solid, dependable form imparts the reassuring familiarity of home, instantly putting the user at ease, regardless of their surroundings.
London-based furniture designer, Dylan Freeth is renowned for producing elegant, well-constructed objects that are both visually appealing and highly functional. The subtle, uncomplicated design of the LARA CHAIR reflects Freeth’s holistic approach to his practice — demonstrating, once again, the timeless brilliance of thoughtful, utilitarian design. Designed to stack easily after use, the LARA CHAIR is the consummate embodiment of Dylan Freeth’s technical skill and artistic sensibilities. Boasting a steam-bent backrest and subtle, crafted details, the chair’s dished seat panel provides a comfortable and reliable base, allowing users to focus on the nourishment and sustenance of dining. The soft tactility of the LARA CHAIR’s surface makes it an inviting accompaniment to a wide array of gastronomic environments, including urban cafes, fine-dining restaurants and lively bistros.
Constructed of solid ash timber, the LARA CHAIR is offered in two distinct finishes: a warm, natural finish and a polished black stain. Classic but not antiquated, the earthy tones of the natural ash have a grounding effect on those nearby, bringing a much-needed sense of calm and alignment to a space. Contrastingly, the boldness of the black lacquer lends a novel, energizing dimension to the LARA CHAIR’s simple form — subtly invigorating its surroundings with its modern flair.
