STRENGTH AND TIMELESSNESS
Inspired by the traditional Danish milking stool as well as the China Chair by Hans J. Wegner, Daumiller set out to create a chair that would be able to withstand both children's play and adults' parties, and at the same time have a sculptural form that radiated strength and timelessness.
Whether working in synthetic materials or in his beloved pine, Rainer Daumiller always demonstrated an acute understanding of his medium. His ability to ‘listen to materials’ mean that his designs were always inspired by the inherent characteristics of what they were made from. His most celebrated works, including the Daumiller Armchair, were in natural materials, and could almost be described as collaborations with nature, rather than the singular visions of an individual designer.
