A chair where details abound
The designer duo Iskos-Berlin has returned to the essence of the chair for Just. They have taken their reference point in the shape of the chair as typically drawn by a child, that is, with legs that seem to protrude directly from the seat. They have visually transferred this effect to the Just Chair, where the frame has been uniquely tucked into the underside of the shell, transforming the chair to a harmonic, natural and unified whole.
Iskos-Berlin say: "Just is not born out of the desire to design a different chair. On the contrary, we wanted to use innovative molding and assembly techniques to achieve an elegant and subtle result, full of hidden details. Good design does not necessarily have to make a lot of fuss - those who want to will see the details."

Iskos–Berlin Design is a partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos.
The company works within the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design. Boris and Aleksej have been working together for several years before establishing their company Iskos–Berlin in 2010. In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation has allowed them to develop a shared philosophy of design. In their own words:
“We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, technology of objects and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!”
