Klio feels contemporary and archetypical at the same time. Fusing traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology creates the sophisticated geometry of the heavy wooden chair. The back, which flows into the armrests, is bent from a 13.8kg piece of steamed wood—optionally beech or oak—on a 100+-year-old machine. After three weeks in the dry kiln the backrest is milled into shape using state-of-the-art CNC technology and carefully polished by hand. The cleverly curved backrest contrasts with the body and its precise edges. Horgenglarus' bespoke solid construction and the ergonomically shaped seat creates a very comfortable armchair.
Klio is full of character and brings a poetic element into Horgenglarus' clear-cut collection, linking two types of shapes; aside from round organic shapes, there are angular straight designs. Klio merges both worlds and is available as a chair with short armrests and as an armchair with long armrests.
Klio was first showcased on the Swiss Designers’ Saturday in November 2014. The poetic-mystic installation at Studio Hannes Wettstein received the "Designers’ Saturday Silver Award 2014."
