Eamesian mood: Overgaard & Dyrman launched Wire Collection

Danish furniture maker Overgaard & Dyrman have launched a film showing the passion and craftsmanship behind their recently launched Wire Collection. The creation of fixtures and custom made tools has become a significant part of the identity of Overgaard & Dyrman. A special made fixture makes it possible for a highly skilled welder to do all welding by hand. This also applies to the creation of the ‘saddles’ for the wire chairs. Here, thick full-grain tooling leather is combined with a layer of foam and soft leather, as it has been done for generations within saddle making. In this way a construction that meets structural, ergonomic and visual desires has been made.
