The Jak is a metal dining chair that merges simplicity and functionality to produce a piece that’s both beautiful and practical. The lightweight aluminium frame makes it easy to manoeuvre, with minimalist lines that visually convey its levity. This edition is made with an upholstered backrest, introducing an added level of comfort and materiality. It’s best suited to dining areas and kitchens, bringing a modern feel to its space, while carrying an element of quiet versatility that allows it to jive well with both contemporary and traditional environments. The Jak is a designer dining chair which strikes that enviable balance between comfort and sleekness of form.
Jak was in the making for a long while before it came to fruition in 2020. Tom remarks, “This chair has been in my head and on the drawing board for a while. I wanted to make something very practical, not too formal, but at the same time very smart. I had the twentieth century Modernists in the back of my mind – I was thinking of Jean Prouvé’s Standard chair, and Gio Ponti’s Superleggera chair, both smart and modest. I wanted to make a chair for the twenty first century.”
Jak can be completed in any of our standard or specialist finishes and comes in your choice of fabric or leather upholstery. To browse all the options, have a look at our Finishes & Materials page.
