The Dyflin chair and accompanying magazine rack were born from an intriguing notion: what if the Vikings had never left, what would Dublin as a city be today?
The collaboration on Dyflin was devised through numerous conversations and a shared appreciation for simplicity, functionality and a respect for Scandinavian lifestyle and traditions and a desire to bring them into an Irish context, using Irish manufacturing and materials. The chair and magazine rack are designed to be beautiful when they are not being used and invisible when they are.
Both the chair and magazine rack work off the same angles and ideology. The materials are kept as simple as possible, using a steel frame to accommodate the sling of high quality Irish leather.
