Introducing Cross Bar Chair
The new Cross Bar Chair is TAKT’s response to a clear demand to bring the timeless aesthetic of the Cross design. The chair embodies the Scandinavian design principles of craft, simplicity and elegance in a design that was circular from the start – sustainable to produce, made to last, easy and intuitive to assemble from flatpack, and properly repairable and recyclable. To create it, Pearson Lloyd took the innovation at the heart of the original design – the eponymous cross structure beneath the seat – and optimised it for bar-stool scale.
Choose from two different heights
Cross Bar Chair Tube brings the timeless aesthetic of the Cross design into high seating areas as bars and countertops. The resultant design is available at two seat heights – 75 cm for bars and 65 cm for countertops. Both versions feature a footrest for comfort, a smaller seat and a smaller, lower backrest to accommodate the different way in which people sit on bar stools compared to dining or lounge chairs.
Designed to look great from any angle, Cross Bar Chair presents enjoyable details with every view. It has clean lines and a comfortable design. Its name comes from its cross construction, which is the essence of the chair. Its sophistication radiates nuance and care.
Made to match any interior
With three timber finishes – oiled oak, smoked oak and black-lacquered oak – and optional upholstery materials including cognac and black leather, and three textiles (sand grey, dark petrol and golden ochre), both versions of the chair can be adapted to suit interiors of different styles. This adaptability ensures the Cross Bar Chair is a welcome addition not only to hospitality settings, but also to workplaces and coworking spaces with high tables – as well as private homes. All fabrics are of course ecolabelled and our leathers have received the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
Praise from the press
All pieces have been awarded the EU Ecolabel, which vouches not only for the sustainability of the materials used, but also for the consideration of the environmental impact a product has in its lifetime.
The Cross Chair is quickly becoming a contemporary classic. The slick, flat-pack work has been winning admirers worldwide since its launch in 2019.
Takt and Manz hope that the “intuitive” design will help avoid the frustrations that people often encounter with self-assembly flat-pack furniture.
The Cross Chair frame is made from solid oak and moulded veneer: a durable material with a natural weight that lends authority to the design. Our products are FSC® certified. FSC® certified forests are given time to naturally regenerate, local wildlife is sustained and worker conditions are balanced. Oak has a characteristic structure which gives a beautiful texture and a familiar tangibility to the surface. The surface is treated with natural white-pigmented oil and water based lacquer. This treatment allows the wood to develop a characterful patina over time, and will also enable you to easily repair damage to the surface by applying light sandpaper and a new oil treatment – again and again. Besides our FSC® certified wood, we only work with eco-labelled wool and the best aniline leather.
Cross Bar Chair is designed through TAKT’s Eco System Design principles and are shipped component based as flat packs. We can pack 5 to 7 times more products in the same volume and therefore minimise CO2 emissions during transportation. Cross Chair is eco-certified and produced using wood from sustainable forests and the full supply chain is certified. It is constructed for disassembly, meaning that all components are replaceable and worn parts can be replaced. Comes with a five-year warranty.
