Description

This distinctive dining chair, originating from a mid-century design, is reimagined using real wood. The chair has been artistically charred with the Yakisugi technique and features hand-carved detailing. For added comfort, it’s been lined with a thin layer of cork. Its final touch is a finish of natural oil and beeswax.

This chair is an integral piece of the Erosion Collection. This collection reflects on the relentless effects of natural elements like wind and water that reshape our world. As life constantly evolves, so does our environment and the objects within it. Whether through wear and tear or evolving tastes, items we once cherished become neglected. These discarded items find new purpose and meaning within the Erosion Collection. The transformation of these materials is symbolic of breaking free from materialistic constraints, echoing the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, which finds beauty in imperfection and transience. This aesthetic embraces qualities like asymmetry, simplicity, and an appreciation for nature. Rooted in traditional techniques like Yakisugi and the use of eco-friendly resources, each piece in this collection tells its own story.

The materials, reimagined and given new life, are sourced from scrapyards, discarded furniture, and remnants from deconstructed buildings. Such innovative re-use challenges our creativity, highlighting the potential within what was once overlooked. By tapping into these possibilities, we pave the way for a more sustainable future.

About Gábor Góbi Visit Showroom →

For Gabor, creation is a journey of discovery. He is dedicated to designing in harmony with the environment, always allowing the present moment and inherent potential of an object to guide him. This philosophy is echoed in gobi.design, where the mission is to seamlessly blend eco-consciousness with a passion for design. Gabor envisions a world where everyone equally benefits from a pristine environment, fostering sustainable lifestyles. He perceives this mission as both a privilege and a profound responsibility — the very catalyst for meaningful change. Items crafted under gobi.design participate in nature's eternal cycle. Drawing inspiration from upcycling, hygge, wabi-sabi, slow living, degrowth, and related movements, these creations persist, constantly reshaped by both gentle and formidable forces. Gabor leans heavily on natural materials, often employing traditional methods like Yakisugi, the Japanese art of preserving wood by charring. His range spans furniture to accessories and sculptures, but all pieces share a singular origin: they are reclaimed from waste.
