Object Embassy was launched in 2019. As interior designers and product developers, we were excited to see the gaining popularity of the 1950’s Pierre Jeanneret design furniture. However this excitement was quickly squashed when we dove a little deeper in the available options.
The market was split with on one hand affordable, yet low quality chairs. Poorly executed in terms of design, quality or even simply falsely advertised in terms of materials used.
Other hand there were well produced and high quality re-editions, yet just simply super expensive. (In our humble opinion it’s hard to justify any €1500 price tag for a chair).
That’s when we started our quest to produce a top quality chair for an honest price.
We embarked on a fascinating journey of extensive research to the origin of the designs, the materialisation and production techniques used in the 1950’s. Along this journey we met with several potential production partners and eventually joined forces with a partner that not only could make these chairs better than any other company, but also shared our values in terms of sustainability and social responsibility.
Why we're different
To make sure we could adhere to our initial goal of a top quality chair for an honest price we had to do a few things differently. First of all we are as much a digital company as we are a furniture company. We only offer our our products online via our own website. By doing this we can bring our prices down significantly and it helps us generating relevant data and insight. This information helps us in making much more informed decisions than any other traditional furniture firm.
Second thing we do radically different is that we only produce one model, in one finish. This makes our production process and inventory management significantly more efficient and help us focus our energy into making each chair perfect, one at a time.
Our mission is to offer top quality chairs for an honest price - a price that is honest to both our customers ánd our production partner and its employees.
