Product Story

Kallio’s expertise in traditional woodworking craftsmanship is evident in his new chair. In Between is produced using two classical techniques; compression moulding (making it light and thin, yet strong) and woodturning (a technique that uses a lathe to achieve greater detail). The materials are ash and oak, both of which respond particularly well to the techniques used. The production of In Between involves modern industrial manufacturing processes and certain interventions by the human hand; a harmony of innovation and tradition.

To admirers of mid-century Danish design, In Between’s lightness and semicircular top rail may echo the work of Hans Wegner (1914-2007), a designer whose work Kallio cites as a subconscious inspiration. In contrast to Wegner’s 1949 Wishbone Chair (also known as the Y Chair), In Between has a more daring pitch, and a more graphic, modular character. In form and technique alike, In Between gives a respectful nod to the past, but ultimately looks forward. 

The In Between is available in Smoked Oiled Oak, White Oiled Oak, Black Stained Ash and an upholstered version (see separate entry).
