Studio Speciaal Debuts a Monolithic Heavy Chair
Fresh off the success of their “Displaced” exhibition, curated for the 20th anniversary of Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, hometown heroes Bram Verbeek and Sjoerd Geerts of Studio Speciaal debut their monolithic Heavy chair. Owing its name to its sheer weight—around 330 pounds—the unreinforced solid concrete stays upright through the form’s balanced shape and dense materiality. “Our work is characterized by conceptual value and quality craftsmanship,” Verbeek says. “By experimenting with different granulates and pigments for Heavy, we realized many textures and colors without compromising its structural integrity.”
