Kaufmann Lounge Chair

Kaufmann Lounge Chair

Made in Australia


SKU: MF-KAU-1 Categories: , ,

 Paying homage to and taking reference from one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most esteemed architectural works, colloquially referred to as the ‘Falling Water’ house. This new collection, the Kaufmann lounge chair and Wright side table look to the bold and dynamic forms found in Wright’s simple yet profound architecture. 

A lounge chair often seeks to ground a space, working as a focal point from which other elements can play a complementary and supportive role, it is with this concept in mind that has driven the design language. An experimental and iterative process of counter balancing planes and volumes in much the same way as architectural form studies are done. Made from simple cut American Walnut, honed Black Stone Granite and Kvadrat coda , Kaufmann and Wright are a contemporary furniture collection giving a nod to a mid-century master.

Designer Information

Frag Woodall is an Industrial Design graduate from The University of Technology Sydney. His design studio MR.FRÄG focuses on interiors and products such as furniture, lighting and home-wares. 

The central ideas within his design philosophy are to allow the products to have functional honesty, material integrity and a sense of poetry, wit or humour that communicate and connect on a human level. These individual elements contribute to the design, however it is ‘storytelling’ that is the true artful activity that binds together all the elements. Imbued in every design is a sense of capturing a single idea or feeling and expressing that with legibility and clarity so the product can be engaged on a referential level. “It is these less tangible notions that I try to pursue and when they are present I feel that a design has more relatability and clarity”. 

Woodall’s emphasis while running his studio is on a blended consideration of conceptual and commercial design. In this approach creative freedom and business values work together to develop an honest expression of design intent, materials and context.
