The aesthetics and the diversity of the raw material wood determine the work of the Atelier Fesseler, which includes furniture and writing instruments.
The well-tried wooden bead mat, used for example as a relief from long taxi shifts, is the godfather of the so-called o432 lounge chair. Flexible wooden beads make up the seat and backrest, which have a similar effect to acupressure and are meant to relax and stimulate. The chair received a prize at the prestigious international Interior Innovation Award and the colour combinations of its limited edition range is designed by Ruprecht Dreher, master student of Joseph Beuys.
Furniture designer Jean-Frédéric Fesseler has a “European” education: he learned to work wood at the renowned Institut Saint-Luc de Tournai in Belgium, concluding his studies there with the title of master ebonist. He then studied design at the Escole Superior de Disseny I Arts in Barcelona. The focal point of his work is making furniture with moving parts, which, besides the o432 lounge chair, also include the tables Geste #1 and Geste #2.
