Thread Family by Coordination

June 26th, 2012 by retail design blog

“Thread Family” is a set of small hight adaptable furnishings featuring a thread and seat lathed from walnut wood on a welded steel base in many colours. The family consists of three members: Small Stool, Bistro Table & High Stool. Main feature is the lathed upper part, consisting of a 40 mm thread cut from american walnut, connected with the seat by a visible and well crafted wedge-joint in a cross shape.

Its surface is finished with hardwood oil to enhance the natural looks and to produce a smooth motion of the thread while adjusting the seat hight. The steel base was welded from precision stainless steel tubes, inspired by high quality bicycle frames. All additional parts like feet and inner thread have been hand crafted from a non dyed technical polymer.

Conceived as objects of high flexibility, the “Thread Family” works in small spaces and in large places. They rise and adapt to the needs of the user and can become a lifelong companion to a kid or an adult. “Thread” emphasizes the natural qualities of wood and works well as a single piece and in a group.
