The Barca lounge chair is your personal statement piece, allowing you versatility in expression. Constructed from bowed pieces of ash wood that are meticulously joined together into a sculptural shape using traditional boat manufacturing techniques, this chair is a work of art - an art which encourages participation.
Designed for easy dismantling, the timber pieces slide easily past each other to form the Barca into an array of shapes from symmetrically zen to strikingly chaotic.
The innovative Barca won the coveted ‘Gold Leaf’ distinction at the International Furniture Design Competition Ashahikawa ( IFDA ), in Ashahikawa, Japan several years ago.
Jacob Joergensen works to create sculptural expressions that do not forgo the everyday function of furniture. He works primarily with wood, exploring the possibilities that have yet to be with a material so prevalent. He is recognised by several awards from across the globe including the Bodum Design Award together with Line Depping; in connection with this award he exhibited at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. He was a finalist in IFDA (International Furniture Design Fair Asahikawa) in Japan, and also received a Wallpaper Design Award in 2012.
