Morgan, contract furniture designer and manufacturer, announces the launch of two dining chairs to the Rakino Collection, a series of lounge chairs and tables, designed by Tim Rundle…
Juxtaposing soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame, the new dining chairs in the Rakino Collection by Morgan feature crisp timber detailing, emphasised by a clean linear structure.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Tim, who brings an international perspective to Rakino,” said Katerina Zachariades, Design Director at Morgan. “We have enjoyed developing this chair and refining our production methods to achieve the light, simple structure that defines it.”
The original collection, which won Product of the Year at the 2019 FX Awards, was first unveiled at Clerkenwell Design Week. Rundle told Hotel Designs that the series of furniture items were inspired “in the best way”, following a trip to see the production. “In Hampshire I discovered a factory staffed by some serious experts in upholstery and timber joinery,” he said. “I really wanted to make the most of these capabilities, and maybe even push them a little to see what was possible. In terms of the chairs themselves I wanted to create something that felt quiet and inviting, that could feel right in your home, while obviously being appropriate for hard working contract environments.”
