Candid Chair by Note Design Studio for Zilio A&C
Alexander Zaxarov
Jun 2, 2020

Candid Chair is a minimal chair designed for Zilio A&C by Stockholm-based atelier Note Design Studio.

Candid is a dining chair in stained ash. Elegant in its straightforward form and honest materiality, the chair has a strong and clear silhouette, making the most of its modest dimensions to achieve a considerable visual impact. Its trapezoidal legs are angled towards the centre of the seat, ensuring that its appearance shifts with the angle from which it is viewed.

Despite its hard-edged, almost cubist, expression, the chair is profoundly relaxing to sit on (and can also be supplied with an upholstered seat), and is designed to be used for prolonged periods, such as lengthy dinners, with no compromise on comfort. Aided by Zilio’s craftsmanship and expertise, the studio was able to make the chair’s dimensions extremely compact, maximizing space efficiency while ensure Candid’s robustness and longevity. As a result, Candid introduces a new dimension to Zilio’s design language, while showcasing the manufacturer’s remarkable craftsmanship.
