Excellent Product Design
Theodor Dining Chair wins German Design Award 2018 in Excellent Product design category. The prestigious awards is given for outstanding achievements in the fields of product and communication design, and to a personality in the design sector by a jury of professionals.
OEO Studio’s vision has been to create a signature design that reflects contemporary sensibilities, while honouring the legacy of 20th century design.
The design borrows inspiration from the enduring qualities of mid-century Danish Modern – spiced, tweaked and given a little present-day zest. Woodturning is a key element of the structural design, a technique that combines classic craftsmanship with high-tech manufacturing. The result is a bold and distinct design where the backrest and the frame effortlessly melt together.
Great design is shaped by passion and the wish to make a difference.
Theodor Dining Chair was created with this philosophy in mind. The vision has been to create a signature design that reflects contemporary sensibilities while honouring the legacy of design from the 20th century. Designed by Danish design studio OEO and conceived in close dialogue with Brdr. Krüger’s master craftspeople. With two centuries of design tradition meeting in one composition, the Dining Chair is named after one of the founding Krüger brothers, Theodor.
