The Patrona chair is a project which Grupa designed for the Croatian solid wood furniture brand Metoda launched in 2022 which builds on their 70-year tradition of making oak wood furniture. The guiding idea was to create a comfortable chair which would combine a breezy laid back personality with an emphasis on construction details.
Although its silhouette stays within the boundaries of traditional design typologies, Patrona was given a unique character through the simplicity of the joints and fine details which testify to the precise craftsmanship and the woodworking process used to build the piece.
The combination of round and oblong shapes used in the backrest, the seat, and the armrests and acute angles of its horizontal outline also create a juxtaposition which gives Patrona a dynamic and elegant visual quality.
The art direction for Metoda collection was conceived by Neisako design studio while visualisations were created by Polymachine.
