Strala’s rattan chair  SEEFELDER. It’s a rattan chair
Our passion for awakened thoughts, the joy of research and the fascination for the essence of matter are the driving force behind the emergence of our objects. SEEFELDER The spirit of Strala is that of a seeker who is constantly challenged to get closer to the cause of the substance and to understand what is hidden behind the curtain. Strala pursues the scent of an intriguing idea, not to kill her, but to breathe life into her.

Where different worlds collide, the frictional forces that we create through our object art & amp; Furniture materialize. Because precisely there, the thought is no longer black or white – it is completely free of values. For a fraction of a moment, there is that immediacy which contains neither knowledge nor meaning, and is therefore more sensuous than anything else in the world.

In recent years, Strala has created a unique collection of art objects that is independent of short-lived trends and constraining norms. Strala’s objects are acknowledged and appreciated as timeless, precise and attractive works of art and use. This is Strala’s DNA.

Love for life

Delicately knotted rattan entwines like ivy around the metal frame and invites you to linger, dream and contemplate. It’s a playful dance between rigid metal supporting softly intertwined wood – tenderness grounded on firmness. Two opposites that complement each other wonderfully and fusion to form a new wholeness. The SEEFELDER series emerged in a three-year process in which the technical and aesthetical possibilities of rattan were explored and further developed. The goal was a relaxed modernity; precise in its form – easy-going in its usage. With its unpretentious nature and the natural warmth of rattan SEEFELDER celebrates the poetry of everyday life and conveys the relaxed feeling of a holiday cottage. The series SEEFELDER is a manifesto against the sterile and arduous design which has in his vanity somehow forgotten the love for life.
