As a furniture designer, Poul Cadovius was primarily known for his iconic shelving systems, such as the 1948 ROYAL SYSTEM®. But with the launch of the PIA CHAIR dining chair in 1959, he was also able to add the title of chair designer to his CV.
He wanted to create a chair in the spirit of the time, inspired by other designer chairs from the 1950s, but lighter and "smaller", both in its physical weight and in its expressive design. The chair was developed on a "less is more" concept, focusing on the minimum consumption of material, maintaining a high level of detail and excellent comfort.
The slim conical legs in solid wood provide a very light visual expression, which is further emphasized by two precise details; the round, hand-sanded finish on the top of the hind legs, and the finger-joint of the front legs. The seat is made of hand-woven paper rope and the back is molded, providing optimal seating comfort. It takes two hours just to hand-knit the seat, so making the chair is a slow process that requires patience and great precision.
