The Lobe chair, designed by Marcin Laskowski for TAMO, is an outstanding example of modern design characterized by a minimalist aesthetic. Made from high-quality oak wood, this chair embodies a perfect synthesis of Bauhaus philosophy and modernist aesthetics. A striking feature of the chair is its unique, three-legged construction, which gives it an unexpected yet timeless elegance.
The design focuses on reducing all wooden elements to the essentials. Particular attention was paid to a comfortable seat and an ergonomically shaped backrest made of curved plywood. This deliberate reduction to a few straight lines and gentle curves emphasizes the Lobe chair’s ability to fit into existing room designs without dominating them. Instead, it blends harmoniously into any interior. The three slender legs not only support the stability, but also contribute to the light impression the chair leaves behind.
Behind the Lobe chair is Marcin Laskowski, founder and chief designer of TAMO. Laskowski brings his deep passion for traditional carpentry and his admiration for art to every piece. His work is characterized by an experimental approach that pushes the boundaries of traditional forms and elegantly integrates cultural references. His design reflects the spirit of Gdynia modernism and minimalist Northern European design, making TAMO a brand with a recognizable identity and expression.
Laskowski’s expertise and extensive knowledge of woodworking and industrial and artisanal production processes was acquired during his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. This knowledge flows into every detail of his creations and makes them unique in the field of modern furniture design.
