Branko Uršič – L Chair (1981)
In 1980, Branko Uršič, one of the leading designer in Slovenian furniture factory Stol, invented furniture system L. Due to the technological limitations in the process of pressing plywood only one curve in a single mold was feasible. It was a rectangular curve in the form of letter “L”. Two L elements combined in a rectangular shape provided a structure for a simple but original solution for complete furniture system from lamellar beech wood: a chair, an armchair, a table and a club table. Natural wood and light colour scheme of textile used for chairs gave those objects almost Scandinavian appeal and modest alternative to the wild aesthetics of the 80’s.
