A wise person once said that wood is good. Buddy is here to prove it. A molded ply back wraps to hug and gently kiss a curved wood seat. Solid wood legs provide a sturdy and elegant base while subtle wood dowel details keep it all feeling special. Also available in dining chair and counter stool.
Buddy was born from the desire to create a fresh-yet-familiar wood chair for both commercial and residential spaces. Blu Dot began by building a full-scale prototype in our Minneapolis studio to work through visual details and comfort adjustments. The base was then refined to its simplest form, while retaining rigidity and strength for the rigors of commercial use. Finally, bent plywood was unconventionally juxtaposed against a solid wood base to create a design that is effortlessly au courant with a gentle nod to the past.
