Todd Bracher - One of the great young designers of the moment, native New
Yorker Todd Bracher has earned worldwide attention for his furniture and product
Bracher teamed up with Humanscale to create the striking Trea multipurpose chair, which mimics the instinctive recline of the human body without resorting to manual controls and the innovative Vessel light.
A Pratt Institute graduate, Bracher earned his MFA in interior and furniture design at the Danmarks Designskole in Copenhagen after winning a Fulbright design fellowship. He was named 2008 New Designer of the Year at New York’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair and has been twice nominated for Bolig’s International Designer of the Year Award. He has global experience, having headed up Tom Dixon's Design Studio in the UK, acted as a Professor of Design at the l'ESAD in France, and worked as Creative Director of luxury Scandinavian brand Georg Jensen.
In 2007 Bracher returned to New York after spending a decade overseas and founded Todd Bracher Studio in Brooklyn.
"I wanted to design a multipurpose chair with a visual simplicity and unique
recline mechanism that would allow it to be used anywhere and by anyone." - Todd
As the line between home and office blurs, workplace design is increasingly informed by residential design. Visionary Designer Todd Bracher’s response to this new era is Trea. While creating this unique multipurpose chair, he investigated how nature had solved the problem of integrated articulation. He was inspired by the lobster shell: an exoskeleton that moves in harmony with the living organism it protects. By following the cues of this natural design, he arrived at a solution that perfectly responds to the human body’s desire to move and recline, without knobs, dials, and levers: a groundbreaking “solid state” recline mechanism that adapts seamlessly and intuitively to sitters of all sizes. The final product is a universal chair that speaks a design language at once modern and timeless.
Trea and the Environment
Humanscale products are designed with a genuine focus on their environmental impact at every stage of their development. For us, the best designs in the world achieve more with less, and sustainability is the natural result of this focus.
Made from highly durable parts, the Trea chair was built to last. Its unique solid state recline mechanism does not use an erodible metal spring, ensuring the chair will perform as well on day one as it will in 10 years. Due to its robust construction, it will not need to be replaced frequently, thereby minimizing landfill and offering a comfortable sitting experience for many years.
