Post Collection by Cecilie Manz for Fredericia

Dezeen Showroom: industrial designer Cecilie Manz has created a range of wooden chairs and tables for Danish brand Fredericia's Post Collection.

The Post Collection comprises the Post Chair and Post Table, which are both available in two versions and made with solid-wood frames to reflect Fredericia's "heritage of wood craftsmanship".

Its name is a nod to the brand's flagship showroom in Copenhagen, which was once home to the Royal Mail House.

According to Fredericia, Danish designer Manz's goal for the Post Collection was for it to be as simple as possible. As such, each form "emerges from the function".

"The Post Collection is an example of eliminating anything extra in order to solely focus on the essential," Fredericia explained.

"For designer Cecilie Manz, creating is about examining the purpose of a piece of furniture. Stripping the concept down to only what's necessary, the form emerges from the function in an expression that's pure and purposeful."

The Post Chair is distinguished by its upright stance and cylindrical legs, intended to suit a range of spaces such as restaurants, hotels, homes or offices. It is available with a wide seat made from plywood or upholstered with leather or coloured fabric.

Post Table is made with similar cylindrical legs as the chairs, with a tabletop available in two lengths. Like the chairs, its minimalist design makes it suited for use in residential, office and hospitality settings.
