Remnant armchair by Note Design Studio

For Note Remnant represents the material that the sculptor might have discarded after creating Core. An ethereal and gentle silhouette whose seat seems to float in the air.

“The idea was to put emphasis on nothing. Specifically, on the negative space surrounding physical objects.”

Remnant is a different but complementary interpretation of Core’s shape.

The product’s technical complexity has been one of the main challenges of this project. Its visual lightness and apparent simplicity are the result of a considerable amount of experimentation and engineering. The essence of this design is characterized by the perfect fusion between industrial curiosity to find new constructive forms, the warmth provided by the artisan work and its impeccable details.

Supporting the seat required a complex feat of engineering to find a solution to get the sturdiness and comfort that this design required: a triangulated metallic structure inspired by architectural weight-distribution techniques.

The subtle quilting that surrounds both the armchair and the sofa adds texture to an iconic design that can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics.

They are also the origin of the Void Matters’ concept. The void becomes a design element just as important as the objects themselves.

Production process
The visual simplicity of Remnant represents a complex feat of engineering. Sancal’s technical office had to find a way to support a seat that floats in the air. A “trial and error process” until we found a solution: a triangulated metallic structure inspired by architectural weight-distribution techniques. “We proceeded to the prototyping stage to check the structural feasibility of this hypothesis. By developing multiple iterations, each an improvement on the last, we tested different thicknesses for the internal structure and reinforcing the most delicate points until we obtained the sturdiness, stability and comfort that this design required.”

Another construction problem was the large volumes of Remnant. In this case, the solution was the division of the structures to facilitate the injection process. The internal structure of the armchair, for example, is composed of three pieces made from various moulds, while the sofa has been solved with four. Joining all these pieces has also been a successfully overcome, in addition to providing strength, we wanted them to be imperceptible.
