The Farmer chair epitomises timeless simplicity using an ingenious design principle that lets you assemble and dismantle the chair as and when you desire.
First designed by Gerd Lange in 1965, the Farmer chair is all about celebrating simplicity. Today, COR is reissuing this classic chair to meet the growing demands for flexible and sustainably produced furniture in the 21st century.
Light yet stable and durable, the chair is conceived as take-away furniture with a simple “plug-in” principle that allows it to be assembled and disassembled in a few minutes. The chair comprises eight solid wood slats, four square legs, two metal clips, and two fabric panels, all built at right angles and ready to be put together or taken apart anytime. The backrest can be freely moved forward, backward, or tilted. The chair also incorporates a highly resilient and quick-drying outdoor fabric that is stretched using cords.
While its name may sound pastoral, the Farmer chair’s aesthetic is far from rustic. The chair conveys a purist design language with nuances of minimalism that is ahead of its time, resulting in a classic piece that fits into present-day interiors effortlessly. It is right at home indoors – living rooms, family spaces, or even in office waiting areas, as well as the outdoor on the patio, balcony, or poolside.
Manufactured in the COR factory in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, the Farmer chair is made from solid wood from controlled forests and treated only with oil. It also features weatherproof fabric made of cotton and recycled PET material. Available in three frames and five types of materials, the chair offers up to fifteen variations to suit a myriad of interior palettes.
