This dining chair was created specifically to compliment the ’Cloud’ table. The objective was to design a simple, functional, but stylish chair that would emulate ’Cloud’s organic form.
The result is ’Kora’, an Esperanto word meaning heart. It is undoubtedly a masterpiece, crafted from the finest American Walnut and upholstered with natural leather of the highest quality.
Its rich materials and soft, exquisite lines, bestow a warm natural expression; its sensual form and smooth satin-like finish are irresistable to the touch.
’Kora’ features dual mortise and tenon joints. This sophisticated, but time-consuming joinery technique demands great patience and extreme accuracy. But the result is so strong, it eliminates the need for stretchers between the legs, thus enhancing ’Kora’s modern, elegant appearance.
Handmade dowels, fixed with delicate wedges for added strength, produces a subtle, attractive detail.
For example, take where the top rail joins the stile. The rail is first formed from a single hand-selected slab of solid Walnut and joined to the stile. The two pieces are then sculpted together to become one. Skovgaard has accomplished this in such an elegant way that your eye flows effortlessly from one structural element to the other, masking the actual intricacy of the joinery.
Not only is ’Kora’ very comfortable and relaxing for your guests, but also, when combined with ’Cloud’, the result is understated elegance and exclusivity in your living room.
