As I told you in one of my previous posts I have visited Riga for a
design tour with a group of bloggers, photographers and journalists and once again
I must say it really was a surprising and very inspiring visit and definitely
worth a second visit in the nearest future!
In addition to the nice people, the amazing historic (Jugenstill) buildings,
the tastefull food and the green parcs, we also learned more about Latvia 's minimalist
design during the tour! One of the companies that we visited was RIGA Chair.
RIGA chair is a trade mark of Riga Chair factory and since its founding in 1999 they
quickly become a leading brand that produced serveral collections for home and
office with natural materials as birch and beech wood combined with fabrics in
different shades. Besides the Red Dot Design Award winner - the flowershaped stool
designed by Aldis Circenisa - I was attracted immediately by the stunning
kids chairs collection and in particular the Roo rocking toy!
