A chair with a story behind it


The De LAURA® chair was designed by a Product Design student named Laura. Unfortunately, she never had the chance to see the finished product. Laura passed away suddenly at the age of 17 as a result of deep vein thrombosis. For that reason, Ahrend and the Stichting Project Laura are carrying on her vision: a reversible, comfortable club chair for both children and adults.

The proceeds of the seat will go to Stichting Project Laura, dedicated to raising awareness around thrombosis and the use of the pill by young girls.

The designer

Laura Brussaard

The young design student Laura Brussaard is only 17 years old when she suddenly dies from the effects of a massive pulmonary embolism. Caused by a combination of a genetic disorder and contraceptive pills. In the first three months of her studies she draws a sketch of a chair, where vulnerable groups can feel safe in. This sketch was designed by Ahrend in collaboration with Stichting Project Laura: De LAURA® armchair. With the LAURA® chair, the Project Laura Foundation and Ahrend are carrying on her vision.
