The A-Chair is an object of striking consis tency: a line of squared-off wood makes its way around the sitter, with a fluid transition from leg to arm and backrest.
The clear formal language here reduces sitting to the essence. In dialog with this are the interlocking wood connections: they turn a structural necessity into a unique aesthetic feature and at the same time represent a tour de force of traditional carpentry. Precisely this tension between functionality and ornamentation makes Feichtner’s A-Chair a formally singular creation.
The A-Chair was made by Thomas Feichtner in cooperation with the Bildraum Bodensee and the Werkraum Bregenzerwald for Schmidinger Möbelbau. It was first shown in April 2016 as part of the exhibition “Thomas Feichtner / Design Unplugged” in the Bildraum Bodensee.
