The modern chairs engineered by Swedish firm Johanson Design take inspiration from sleek trousers and the history of fashion. The seats, known as the Frankie, offer a sleek wire structure coupled with supple and plushed cushioning that adds a contemporary flare to any space.

The Frankie seats are aesthetically structure to replicate the look of a pair of trouser suspenders. The seats are made from a series of four metallic legs and a wired Y-shape that runs across the back seat. The design mimics the style of a pant brace that runs across the back of the wearer. This gives the furniture pieces a humanistic quality while simultaneously adding an element of life to the design. The seats are then covered in sleek and bold cushion colors including yellow, oxblood and white.
