But basic shouldn’t be taken to mean typical. To the contrary, Jonas Forsman’s Evo chair puts a unique spin on classic Scandinavian design.

The wood is beautiful, of course, but Evo’s most notable feature may be the elegant swath of textile doing double duty as seat and back. This is a bespoke 3D knitted mesh from Camira Fabrics—sourced from post-consumer waste.
