The typology of the Tanka chair is very classic and has been interpreted in many ways in many chairs. What gives Tanka its distinctive character, is the way that the back legs connect to the solid wood backrest, almost as if they were melting into it.
It has a very simple frame, with a subtle curve of the back legs giving it a bit of elegance. It is extremely lightweight for a wooden chair, but very sturdy. The word tanka means ‘thin’ in Croatian, which seemed to be the right name for a chair with such a light and playful appearance.
Available in 6 different types of wood, European oak, walnut, maple, elm, cherry, and pear, with various natural finishes, oils, and soap. Tanka is suitable for both residential and contract use.
