Aaron Duke and I have been long time collaborators on furniture projects for office furniture companies. We’ve always wanted to work on an experimental concept between contract and residential realms. The Coude (pronounced “cood”) is a blend of Japanese and Scandinavian design sensibilities. It has a poised and graceful stance with a bit of quirkiness to it’s proportions. We meant it to be light in scale, weight and material use.
It is currently only a prototype but some discussion has come about a limited production run.
See the unveiling at the Interior Design Show this week in the prototype exhibit.
