Austrian design company Schmidinger Möbelbau have created a chair that is a cross between traditional alpine furniture and Danish modernism.

The Trix chair is influenced by the alpine brettstuhl chair which is usually constructed from two interlocking planks.  This version has been modified to include a prefabricated shell seat that resembles Arne Jacobsen’s Ant Chair in shape and proportion.  As a nod to the usually elaborately carved back of the brettstuhl chair, Schmidinger Möbelbau have added heart-shaped curves and cutouts to the Trix chair.  The dark elm wood legs are joined and braced with a cross-shaped frame underneath the prefabricated shell seat.  The seats are finished in either anthracite, white or pastel green.
