Nørd by David Geckeler for Muuto

Here's some more information from Muuto:

David Geckeler and his Nerd Chair won Muuto’s design competition for Scandinavian design schools in 2011. Now his independent and unique take on an all-wood chair joins the Muuto collection.

Muuto’s new Nerd chair combines an impeccable sense of craftsmanship with a strong personality while still maintaining a certain simplicity. Through the innovative integration between seat and back, the precise detailing and the organic shape, David Geckeler has created a chair with an iconic and unique appearance.

“While the appearance of Nerd is unique, the overall expression, material and craftsmanship all have references to classic Scandinavian design values. I am really happy with the result; a chair that stands out as a very personal and distinct interpretation of an all-wood chair.” - David Geckeler
