Just as the name of this chair implies, something is hidden between its parts. At first glance, it might appear to be an ordinary wooden chair, but if you look closer, the complexity of the design will gradually dawn on you. When you sit on Haiku, you experience not only its comfort but also the joy of discovering its subtle and elegant details. In the hands of Spanish designer Mario Ruiz, a knowledge of wood- work and innovative use of industrial machinery have resulted in a physical Haiku.

“The market is filled with classic wooden chairs that remain fresh and work very well. So when designing this chair I was not following a new language; that would have been pretentious on my part. Especially in Scandinavia. A chair is an interplay of interconnected elements and this project raises the connection of all the parts in a way that is not common now and was not possible in the past”, says Mario Ruiz. Haiku is a meeting between Scandinavian craftsmanship and advanced technology. The chair is light and durable and the woven seating can be supplemented with a range of specially selected fabrics that are easy to attach and remove. Haiku is the fifth project born out of a long and fruitful collaboration between Offecct and Mario Ruiz.
