Segment Highback Dining Chair in Kuba-Inspired Fabric
- Materials & Construction
- Shipping Information
Simple, geometric planes combine in unexpected ways to create sculptural, yet functional forms within the Segment Series.
TRNK Collection upholstered seating combines our appreciation for elegant, yet practical design with the enduring qualities of American manufacturing.
"The process for designing the Segment Series was reductive. I asked, how can we simplify these forms to make dense materials like solid stone or chunky upholstery feel a bit lighter? That's how the small gaps between adjoining planes, which now define the collection, came about. I also considered how light interacts with the product, allowing the occasional ray to peer through the slivers of negative space," says TRNK Founder, Tariq Dixon.
The series features high-density foam seat cushions and a rock-solid CAD-engineered hardwood frame.
For our digital exhibition PROVENANCED, we're offering the Segment Dining Chair in two Kuba-inspired fabrics by the renowned fabric mill, Pierre Frey. Kuba is either a flatwoven or a raffia pile cloth that resembles velvet, originally developed in the 17th century by the Kuba kingdom of the present-day Democratic Republic of Congo. The intricately woven textiles feature geometric motifs made by embroidery, appliqués, or patchwork. The traditional uses ranged from overskirts for ceremonies to a simple mode of currency.
The contemporary interpretations made by Pierre Frey are variations of velvet, made from combinations of linen, cotton, viscose, and polyester.
Each piece is made-to-order in the USA by expert craftsmen using the highest quality materials and techniques.
