COCO COLLECTION

BY OEO STUDIO

Originally designed in response to a self-initiated challenge by a studio known for working in wood, the Coco Chair by OEO Studio is an exercise in reduction, using tubular steel to create the simplest possible chair frame.

A sculptural seat and backrest add a welcoming and human feel, and a collection is born, and named ‘coco’ after its distinctive feminine silhouette.

Stackable & durable

The newest version of the coco dining chair stacks up to 10 high, making perfect for dynamic spaces – and its level 2 certification gives it the durability to handle even the most demanding environments.

Craftmanship

The whole structure is lightweight enough to be moved easily making it highly functional as well as elegant. The understated and yet playful two-piece design of the Coco Collection fits into any interior and offers endless options for upholstery in two tones or one, so you can make it your own.

“As a designer you tend to have your favorite materials – we are known for our passion for wood. We had never designed a metal chair before Coco, and it was a great challenge to come up with a fresh “new” look made out of tubular steel.”

The Coco Collection is the result of true collaboration, with GUBI and OEO Studio working hand-in-hand from the earliest seed of an idea through to the execution of a comprehensive and commercial collection.

A playful chair with character

Coco has its own distinctive style and design language. Its strong silhouette allows for dressing the chair up in a bold manner or creating a more classic toned down look. Its backrest and armrest embrace the sitter and provide a warm, welcoming feel.

And the comfort is really amazing – you can sit in it for hours.

“We wanted the frame of the Coco Chair to create its own design language that one could connect with. We ended up conceiving a fresh new signature in a world that is already flooded with chairs.”
