Petite is a minimal chair created by Sweden-based designer David Ericsson for Gärsnäs. Petite is a contemporary Scandinavian counterpart to the classical café chairs found in European cafés. A minimalist construction in beech makes it as practical as it is elegant. A focus on details, such as the crafted joints in the back and front legs, gives the chair its unique character. The seat is slightly conical to be neater and the moulded back slat is higher to avoid further support. The simple design makes it just as suitable in the home at the kitchen table as in a relaxed café or restaurant. And since it is both stackable and minimal in design, it requires little space, regardless if it is put aside or in use. Ericsson states, “I have tried to rationalize away all unnecessary areas to reduce the number of components. It gives the chair a cleaner style, while also making it easier to build and uses resources more efficiently.”
