bik chair | design numen/foruse
Bik is the chair reduced to its basic elements; four legs, seat and a backrest. Barely visible decrease of width of the legs, frontward inclination of the back legs and slightly overstated curvature of the backrest define the character of this, otherwise archetypal chair. Wider back legs are slightly detached aside enabling easy stacking when chairs are not in use. The structure is made of solid wood, while the seat and the backrest are made of molded plywood.
seat and backrest: bent plywood
finish: lacquer matte
legs: solid wood
finish on the leg: acrylic lacquer

NUMEN/FORUSE IS A CROATIAN-AUSTRIAN DESIGN COLLECTIVE WORKING IN THE FIELDS OF SCENOGRAPHY, INDUSTRIAL AND SPATIAL DESIGN AND CONCEPTUAL ART. THE GROUP WAS FIRST FORMED IN 1998 AS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS.
Under the banner ForUse they designed for Cappellini, ClassiCon, Desalto, Interlubke, Magis, mdf Italia, Moroso and Zanotta. Numen/ForUse designs interiors and outdoor spaces in cooperation with architecture studios 3lhd (Croatia) and Imarea (Austria). In 2008 the collective turns its focus towards configuring objects and concepts, an activity resulting in more hybrid and experimental works such as the Numen-Light series, Tape Installation and Net. From 2004 onwards, they became intensely involved with scenography. Numen/ForUse are the only Croatian contemporary product designers whose works are regularly represented in global anthologies of contemporary design.
