"The crossed legs shape the overall structure of the chair, with darker wooden nails in the joints enhancing the crafted beauty," said Eikund. "The backrest is stretched out like a sail by a piece of leather sewn to the frame."

Krysset's hardwood frame is available in a range of finishes, including soaped oak, oiled oak, white oiled oak, oiled walnut and black lacquered oak.
