Pier Chair is a minimalist chair designed by Léonard Kadid for resident. The chair is inspired by the straight, weighty cylindrical pillars of pier structures. Made entirely from solid oak, the dining chair is composed using only mortise and tenon joints, allowing the wood fibers to run continuously throughout, giving the piece sustained durability.
Pier’s solid oak seat and backrest are precisely carved by CNC to create a comfortable seating position. Easily stackable, the Pier Chair has a strong yet refined presence that suits a range of domestic and commercial interiors.
