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 though is the way that the back legs connect to the solid wood backrest, almost as they were melting into each other. The chair has a simple frame, with a subtle curve of the back legs giving it a bit of elegance. It is extremely lightweight for a wooden chair, yet 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. The Tanka chair is available in 6 different types of wood (oak, walnut, maple, elm, cherry, and pear), with various natural finishes (oils and soaps) upholstered with a range of leathers or fabrics.
