The classic design of Dome was born when a Japanese furniture influencer defined to Asko Lax with an ambitious design chair suitable for mass production:
"The chair has a simple frame and few parts, but the most important is the new, innovative veneer press, which makes it unique in relation to its competitors."
The innovative part by definition is the Dome’s backrest, whose fan-like, upward-widening shape provides natural support in a variety of sitting positions. The support bars, which allow the back to be firmly attached to the matte chrome frame with invisible screw connections, create an interesting variation of light and shade on their surfaces in all interiors. It emphasizes the sophisticated and airy light shapes of the chair.
The chair has proven its durability in public restaurants as well as in private homes, where the oldest individuals still fulfill their function, more than two decades after its introduction.
The designer is grateful to his friend who threw the original challenge, whose advice helped get the design work started. However, he wants to add a comment now that he thinks the product is only at the beginning of its life cycle:
“If the chair today still looks new and fresh but the same as it has always existed, it can be said that the work has been a success."
