The Allez chair has a light and airy look, and the design idiom draws on recognizability. The organic curves of the shell mimic the shape of the body. Together with the reinforced backrest, this ensures optimal strength and seating comfort. The designer's signature principle of an honest design suited for modern needs is clearly evident in the shape of the Allez chair. About the design, designer Simon Legald tells:
"Most chairs are based on a construction consisting of a type of shell and a frame. By breaking up the chair into components, it can be shaped and adapted to suit different environments. The construction was a key motivation in the design and is what makes Allez so innovative and unique."
Allez is available in five timeless tones, each reflecting the stark and beautiful Nordic nature. A balanced and neutral color palette of park green, grey and warm grey, as well as black and white, allows the design to humbly fit into larger contexts and outdoor environments. The color scale supports the desire for a design that will stay relevant for many generations to come.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon's designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
"Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression."
