CORDA | Tonon
Designed by acclaimed German designer Cuno Frommherz, “Corda” is a modern chair that can be used both indoors and outdoors, making it the perfect statement piece for either the dining room or the deck.
Corda is available as a chair, or bar/counter stool, and is made from a durable blend of natural and man-made materials.
The painted steel structure is available in two colors, and is combined with the color of the rope, which forms the supporting structure of the seat and back.
There are two different types of weaving, both hand woven, to select from. The simplest version, recalls the form of a fishing net, whilst the more elaborate version, (the result of a very laborious technical processing) uses a series of knots similar to those used on sailboats or with ropes used in mountaineering. For the elaborate version there is a considerable increase in the quantity of material used.
“Corda” integrates well in any environment, whether it is for the outside terrace of a house or in the dining room, the terrace of a restaurant on the seaside, for use inside or outside a mountain cabin or chalet, and even for the poolside or wet room areas. The comfort factor gained by using this material, which everyone will perceive differently, makes this product truly special. Frame and rope are weatherproof, both in cold and hot seasons.?
Cuno Frommherz work considers the aspects of space, aesthetics and perception; questions that continually challenge and motivate him to think of new ways to approach products. Cuno says; “My creations seek to create personality of their own, while maintaining a sense of restraint and calm, so that users can add something of themselves without feeling dominated by the product”.
