News from Roiivar

-

Roiivar creative studio is a small design firm in Gothenburg, Sweden, dedicated to “retaining the importance of creative and sustainable solutions in product development”. Its main focus on furniture prototyping and small production series. I’m so glad to hear that things went really well for them at Milan Design Week 2014, they got a lot of well deserved attention for their new chair and table. I also like the new logo, congrats guys!

Mechanical Wood Trestle. One automatically finds the specific shapes of folding-mechanisms bound to certain types of materials, mostly metals and plastics. This can be explained by as a material reference point, the minds simultaneous involuntary enabling and disabling of earlier references. The clashing of the firstly perceived material and shape with the actual material used, in this case birch, results in an eye catching yet subtle table trestle.

The SR chair does not have the joints of your everyday chair. Each corner of the chair is squared up from top to bottom with 45 degree angles, resulting in a construction that is strong enough to allow both a slim and light-weight design. All outer angels are 90 degrees.
