Udon Chair

The Udon Chair (laminated beech; clear, green, brown or indigo stained lacquer), pictured here at Coffee for Sasquatch on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, was designed by Staffan Holm and produced by Hem.

By borrowing from both European and Japanese carpentry traditions, Holm has created a compelling version of the classic bistro chair. Built from a simple few sturdy joints, Udon attains an openness uncommon to such stiff seating. The beech wood’s subtle grain is accentuated by the variously colored stains.
