“The combination of the right proportions and the overall functionality of the furniture are important to me, so in the end the furniture stands as a whole both functionally and aesthetically.”
Ronin offers a symbiosis of craftsmanship and culture. A combination of Japanese and Danish design highlighting the love of wood and materials.
EMIL LAGONI VALBAK & FREDERIK WERNER
Emil Lagoni Valbak and Frederik Werner met at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts where they graduated in 2013. Frederik and Emil belong to the new generation of Danish design but follow the tradition of natural and pure Nordic design.
What was the initial inspiration for the Ronin chair ?
“To create a combination of traditional scandinavian stick furniture with a more Japanese look. The curved backrest and seat are the elements that meet the body, and are distinguished from the frame through it’s soft and accomodating shapes.
We found inspiration in architectural arches, samourai swords and helmets.”
