HAY has invited Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, to design a new collection of furniture for the redesigned University of Copenhagen (KUA). The collection includes a wooden chair, a bar stool and several tables.

The starting point for this series is based on an old university chair, inspired by the architect Bernt Pedersen’s trestle chair. This chair is a simple and beautiful chair with an uncomplicated identity. In our interpretation we have upheld the original chair typology (trestle chair) and sought to maintain the compelling simplicity of the original chair.
Due to the symmetrical frames chairs and tables both stack vertically, allowing an almost infinite stacking, where most other chairs stack forward.

We have attempted to create a range of educational furniture, which in form and identity has a clear dating in our age, and with it's compelling manner uncovers the current functional needs of a university. It has also been our aspiration, to distance ourselves from the slightly institutional expression of traditional educational furniture and create furniture with greater originality and a more domestic expression.
