VIBRANCY AND SYNTHESIS ARE THE MAIN PRINCIPLES OF THE SECOND FURNITURE COLLECTION BY O&A LONDON AND THE ODD CHAIR COMPANY.
Oleg Klodt and Anna Agapova presented their second furniture collection Synthesys in 2019.
The Odd Chair Company – a family run business established over 50 years ago. The company is one of the last remaining truly traditional upholstery workshops left in the world.
During the creation of the new collection the designers were led by an idea to manufacture a product line which falls within a more democratic price bracket while at the same time being more universal in terms of style.
This aim dictated the method. The new collection is very close to constructionism in style and the main principles are mobility, functionality and succinctness. At the same time every product reflects the unique signature of its designers – elegant lines and immaculate detail.
“Fabrics and their properties will continue to change and develop but the simple joy of sitting in a well-made chair or sofa made traditionally by artisans will not” – James Cook, the owners of the Odd Chair Company
All of the items are characterised by artful playing with shapes and volume, where laconic geometry is compensated by sophisticated decorative accents. Vibrancy and synthesis are the main principles of this collection which also inspired its name.
One of the advantages of the Synthesys collection is the possibility of wide customisation. The client gets the opportunity to be a co-author changing the colour, size and materials to taste and create objects that reflect their own individuality.
Following an established O&A tradition every item derives its name from various constellations and galaxies: Delphini chaise, Ceti armchair, Apodis sofa, Octantis side table, Orion coffee table.
