News: Barstool and side tables + Q&A with Aurélien Barbry

Fredericia Furniture Fredericia Furniture

At Salone del Mobile, Fredericia presented a new range of barstools and side tables designed by French designer Aurélien Barbry, known for his functional and minimalist design approach. Steel and wood shaped into a graphical, yet functional new series of furniture – The Barbry Collection.

The Barbry Collection consists of a barstool and three side tables of various heights. The stringent graphical expression of the products leaves no space for redundant parts. Every single piece fulfills a function – a design approach very similar to how Børge Mogensen created his furniture half a century ago. An example of this methodology are the multiple footrests of the barstool placed in various positions. This allows people of different heights to sit comfortably while at the same time adding strength, stability and finally a distinct shape to the product.

The barstool is divided into three vertical sections each made from two pieces, creating footrests where they meet. The resulting structure is then capped by a seat in black lacquered ash to create the seat. For extra comfort, a fully upholstered version is available.

Each side table is assembled of three equally sized pieces capped by a tabletop in solid oak, making it strong enough for both residential and public use.

Designer’s comments
“When designing new objects I always look at existing structures, which I try to refine and infuse with a certain twist that enhances both functionality and contemporary esthetics. As for the barstool and side tables, the various products are made of the same pieces of steel. This is a quite unique approach, both from an esthetic but also from a production wise point of view as we have a stock of pieces that can be used for either a barstool or a side table depending on the demand” – Aurélien Barbry.

Barbry barstool and side tables will be available in stores from June 2017
