B25 easy chair was designed by Cate Högdahl and Nelson Ruiz Acal for the Swedish furniture manufacturer Blå Station.
Description from Blå Station:
B25 is an easy chair in compression-moulded birch with a surface of ash veneer. The seat is upholstered in polyether foam and down.
Blå Station is 25 years young in 2011, and Cate & Nelson were commissioned to design a product to commemorate the occasion – B25. Their brief was to base this product on the language of design that characterised Blå Station in its earliest days – the round birch-wood ring and natural tanned leather from Tärnsjö Tannery.
The result, B25, also builds on the idea of furnishings as members of a family – creating not just a single item of furniture, but a small series, a group of furnishings or a family based on the same idea and using the same basic components. The allusions to Börge Lindau’s Oblado series are unmistakable. Blå Station first manufactured the iconic round ring in birch in 1986 – and the very same tool has now been used for B25. The covered back assumes its intended shape once it has been fitted in place in the ring, in the same way as the backrest on Hövding chair, for example.
