The Monk design integrates the modernist tradition and contemporary design.
Originally, the Monk chair and easy chair were designed for the purpose of
renovation of Hotel Dubrovnik Palace, which is an icon of the Croatian
architecture. At the same time, their design pays homage to a very popular
classic design by Niko Kralj - the Lupina chair. The chair’s shell is composed of
two bent pieces of plywood upholstered in fabric, with a simple structure
made of massive wood or metal lying underneath. The armrest forms part of
the seat and the whole shell appears to float independently of its relatively
inconspicuous support. The Monk collection includes a chair, easy chair and a
chair with the central swivel base (fixed or with castors). In addition to the
basic barstool model, there is also a new version of Monk barstool and the
counter stool available with the backrest upholstered in fabric. The base
comes in two heights and with four legs or a sled base. The Monk
collection also includes a dining room table, bench and low tables.
Monk family of chairs has been further extended adding a chair with central
swivel base, fixed or with castors. Upholstered seat and the backrest enhance
the quality of sitting, making this chair ideal for the long-hours office work,
wherever your place of business is, at home or in office. Monk barstools with
backrest are a new members of the Monk collection. The seat and the back are
made of bent plywood, like in chairs and easychairs – and upholstered in
fabric. The base comes in two heights (counter stool – 60 cm; barstool – 75 cm)
– and with four legs or sled base.
