BARCA Lounge Chair

BARCA Lounge Chair

This iconic piece, with a name meaning “little boat” in Italian, allows the user to easily change the shape by sliding 28 movable pieces of plywood. There is endless versatility in what you can create, from a crescent shape to a sphere. BARCA won the Gold Leaf Award at IFDA 2008, for its demonstration of impeccable crafting prowess. Each of the parts is easy to slide, and also easily stays in place once they have been moved. Now, BARCA is known as a symbol of CondeHouse’s attitudes and consciousness towards design. Its prominent presence attracts conversation no matter where it is displayed.

Jakob Joergensen

Jakob Jørgensen mainly works with wood and steel, and likes to explore possible new expressions in what is, mildly put, a thoroughly tested materials. He carefully ponders the issues he addresses, and once having a clear idea, he goes into his workshop and proceeds to create models and other experiments to shape ideas into finished products. Products with a sculptural expression is always his aim. In his design he strives to create something that looks like an art piece but also fits naturally into everyday life as a functional object.

Jakob Jørgensen has exhibited at Galerie Maria Wettergren in Paris and taken part in the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition since 2009. In 2011 he received the Bodum Design Award together with Line Depping. In connection with this award, he exhibited at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. In 2008 he won a gold leaf IFDA (International Furniture Design Fair Asahikawa) in Japan, and his winning piece Barca went into production by CondeHouse.
