The very first idea and intention was the principle of “straddling” any shape of construction. All details of the shape shall be streaming and a homogeneous overall impression was the main aim. To reach this effect the textile is bended over a slightly metal frame.

Patrick Frey has created the Nook stool and bench in collaboration with the German furniture brand Vial. The furniture series is made using a unique material called VarioLine®. The material is widely used in automobile and marine industries, but has been used in furniture design for the first time. The VarioLine® is also weatherproof, UV-resistant and easily recyclable. Both stool and bench are made from the single piece of material.
