Teak with talent
by Markus Hieke | 6/4/2019
Through tradition, innovation and a successful repositioning: Under the artistic direction of Henrik Pedersen, Gloster has changed considerably over the last few years.
Scandinavian design meets shaker. This trans-Atlantic concept leaps creative boundaries,
combining notes of mid-century architecture and a minimalist aesthetic. At home in any
contemporary or classic space, Archi by Henrik Pedersen, cleverly combines two elemental
materials - outdoor rope and Gloster’s signature buffed finish teak, to produce furniture that
is as perfectly refined as it is striking.
Renowned Danish designer Henrik Pedersen has combined two simple materials to produce
a Lounge Chair that defines the concept of understated elegance. As Henrik says, “The
challenge of this design was to create a complex solution from the simplest palette - almost
to create everything from nothing! I wanted to create the purest form of seating with the most
traditional of materials and yet attain both comfort and a design statement that surpassed
more opulent routes”.
As an addition to the existing Archi dining & bar chairs and perfect as part of Gloster’s Mix &
Match concept, the Archi Lounge Chair cleverly uses a mix of tactile, buffed finish teak and
Raven coloured outdoor rope to make its presence known. With striking, minimal lines and a
minimal palette, the Archi Lounge Chair fulfils Henrik’s ambition by standing proudly unique.
Of particular note is the wrapped back panel where individual sections of rope are extended in a fine, linear pattern to the seat below to create a highly distinctive, yet effective lumbar support.
