Product description

Forcina Armchair in black on natural ash with brushed metal frame

Product family


The collection Forcina by Leon Ransmeier comprises a chair, an armchair, and a stool with a steel frame, a wooden seat, and a backrest. The collection is rounded off with a table. In Ransmeier’s own words: "The Italian word forcina means “hairpin” in English. The Forcina collection has a pragmatic feminine character. From the outset, it was considered within the context of a café or a restaurant. Historically, café chairs often have a curvilinear form influenced perhaps by the iconic history of Viennese café furniture or the sweetness of the pastries served there. The shape of Forcina’s solid wooden seat and backrest echo the comfortably sculpted surfaces on the top of the seat and the front of the backrest. The stainlesssteel frames are CNC—bent and enable efficient manufacturing with few parts and minimal welding. The frame reaches beyond the backrest and, like the hairpin, offers easy handling. The collection includes chairs, armchairs, square and round tables, low stools, and barstools. All items are available in natural oak, natural ash, or black stained ash. The frames come either in a blasted stainless-steel or a black lacquered finish.
