SUPERKINK, the bold big brother of Straw in the form of a sofa and easy chair.
Design: Osko + Deichmann 2013
A pipe with kinks or folds in it has always been regarded as a failure, but by carefully selecting where and how to place the kinks, they become decorative details that also retain their strength. Straw, the first chair with kinks in its metal tubes, received the +1 award at the 2009 Stockholm Furniture Fair. Since then the Straw family has grown to include a lounge chair and a bar stool. We’re now maintaining and nurturing this new family situation, and also showing that what can be seen as a failing can be a success. Superkink is a brash big brother of Straw, with hard kinked steel tubing and soft, comfortable upholstery.
