Juno Chair by Patrick Frey for FreiFrau

Juno can be construed as symbolic of a classic farmhouse chair. To create it, the designer implemented traditional artisanship techniques in combination with a variety of modern elements. In doing so, he succeeded in reinterpreting the archetypal wooden chair entirely, while still staying true to its origins.
