Year of Launch 2018
Beautifully minimal, the Afteroom Counter & Bar Chair Plus pays homage to functionalism and the Bauhaus school of art. A MENU bestseller ever since its launch in 2012, the chair is the work of Afteroom, a young Stockholm-based design studio, founded by designers Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei. With Afteroom Counter & Bar Chair Plus the duo elevate the chair to higher heights with the introduction of a new bar version that has now been added to the Afteroom Chair family. Like the original, the stool is deconstructed and stripped of unnecessary components, but now boasts the additional feature of a wider backrest and a luxurious upholstering of both seat and backrest. The result is a blissfully simple chair that embodies both minimalism and style, bound to steal the show in any room.

Concept

Afteroom, the Stockholm-based Taiwanese design studio, was tasked with creating iconic furniture designs that were both minimalist and comfortable with a silhouette that was both sleek and instantly recognisable. Defined by this ‘less is more’ aesthetic, MENU’s Afteroom Collection profiles honest materials on an elegant collection of furniture with lasting appeal.

A study of the unity between functionalism and minimalism, the Afteroom collection looks to the simple, geometric lines of the Bauhaus design movement to create furniture and interior objects pared back to their purest forms. The Afteroom Dining Chair was MENU’s first foray into the world of chair design. Given our Scandinavian heritage in iconic chair design, we knew from the start that this chair needed to be special. Stripped of all superfluous details to reveal a chair in its most simplistic form, the chair pays homage to Bauhaus and functionalism with a design that combines minimalistic clean lines with high quality materials and craftsmanship, without compromising comfort. The addition of a plywood version creates a new expression in the now classic collection.

Since they were reinterpreted into multiple iterations, the collection’s chairs and bench reveal only the most essential elements of their design. Tubular powder coated steel legs and a characteristic backrest that extends upwards from beneath the chair seat to support the body are crafted using some of the same techniques used in Bauhaus modernism — steel bending, die casting and welding. The uncompromising designs with a silhouette that is both sleek and instantly recognisable are available in multiple iterations, each representing the utmost in comfort and style and in fully customisable versions to suit any space and style.
