RM56 WOOD (plywood) is the name of an armchair from a collection of furniture designed by Professor Roman Modzelewski, offered by VZÓR from 2016.
The seat prototype was created in the 1950s and was made of plywood. The organic-shaped seat was set on a metal abstract-form structure. It was one of the first times when the plastic properties of plywood were used in the Polish furniture making. In 1956, Roman Modzelewski repeated the design in winidur – PVC. An armchair in this material version won the second prize in the category of individual furniture at the 2nd National Interior Design Exhibition in Warsaw in 1957.
The first test implementation of the armchair under the VZÓR brand took place in 2012. Work on the seat form led to introduction of many modifications invisible to the eye but important from the perspective of ergonomics and performance. Use of industrial manufacturing technologies allowed to avoid constraints related to craft manufacturing and to offer a product with fixed quality parameters which can be produced fast and relatively cheap, in large batches. The total redesign of the armchair manufacturing technology made it possible to connect the legs with the seat shell in a durable way without having to drill the seat out, which significantly improved the aesthetic value.
The armchair implementation, in particular the selection of manufacturing technologies and materials assuming redesign of selected technical parameters in order to improve the armchair’s functional and aesthetic value, is a model example of Vzór brand operation and its approach to building its collection.
Plywood covered with colourless varnish (semi-matt). Abstract form frame made of bent wire, lacquered in color (RAL) or chrome plated.
