Menu's Afteroom Bar Stool and Counter Stool are additions to a growing chair family from Stockholm-based studio Afteroom. Following the success of the original chair, new upholstered finishes using the finest Aniline leather and Kvadrat textiles, provide further luxury and comfort.
Designed in 2013 by Afteroom Studio, the Afteroom Chair was the first chair to be designed for Menu. The piece is stripped back of any unnecessary components to reveal the essential functions of a chair in it’s most simplistic form. The minimalistic clean lines pay homage to Bauhaus, with a design that combines good quality materials and functionalism to create an aesthetically stunning piece of design, without in any way compromising comfort. In the relatively short time since it's inception, the chair has already become a modern classic with an instantly recognisable silhouette.
Stockholm design studio Afteroom respects wear and tear and the passage of time. Founded and directed by Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei, the studio’s mission is simply to create beautiful products which will increase in value with the passage of time - design with which one can grow old. The inspiration derives from an intriguing interest in forms, senses, proportions, materials and cultures. The philosophy pivots around simplicity and honesty.
