Reinventing the wood  Cresta, the first shell chair made of solid wood


Designed by the talented Jörg Boner from Zurich, the Cresta chair combines the robustness of the traditional chair of the Swiss mountains with contemporary aesthetics and modern technologies of processing wood. The pure pine energy radiating from Cresta chair is concentrated in the jointure. It is the first shell chair made of solid wood, fabricated with the finger joint technology, connecting a seat and a back in a unique streamlined structure, used for the first time at this length. The shape and thickness of every part of the Cresta Chair have been sculpted to look delicate but remains sturdy and ensures excellent stability. Oval rather than circular legs seem to be slim from the front and stronger when you look at the profile. But also the front legs have been pushed back so all of them use the same joints to create a focal point and thus a new « K » shape to sit on. Produced of solid wood, the Cresta Chair, with its contrast between a raw look and a smooth feeling appearance, would as easily fit into a country cottage as well as into a stylish apartment in a city tower, and for many years to come, thanks to its durability and timeless beauty. This is also possible thanks to the contemporary selection of colors, that can fit different personalities: from the minimalistic shades of black and white to the Scandinavian allure of pink. The Cresta Chair is the answer to the question of how to sit comfortably on a piece of solid wood without feeling like you’re sitting on a bench. The form of the Cresta Chair has been designed to hug the curves of your body offering a long-lasting comfort. By blending tradition with a contemporary approach, the Cresta Chair represents a natural evolution of one of the most emblematic chairs of Swiss heritage, Stabelle, a traditional chair furnishing Swiss mountain inns and restaurants since the 16th century. Appreciated for its innovative character and elegant reinterpretation of this classic of Helvetic design, the Cresta Chair was awarded Design Preis Schweiz. The jury of this edition was composed of such personalities as Liesbeth in’t Hout, Ascan Margenthaler, Jasper Morrison, Lars Müller, Robb Young. « Cresta chairs represents a high wire act in terms of wood processing technology and static and design aspects » says an official communiqué de Design Preis Schweiz. To complete the Cresta family Jörg Boner has also designed a table that fits perfectly with the pure lines of the chair: an example of high controlled curves that can transform solid wood into a delicate and warm complement for the living room.
