The Almost-Not-a-Chair Chair

achair_01

At first glance, the minimalist INA chair might not even be recognizable as one. It’s all about a reduction in material volume without sacrificing style. Its purposefully constructed with wood where it matters: the seat and back rest. The resulting aesthetic is sculptural and light. While it’s not the most comfortable, it does prevent slouching and requires the user to have perfect posture while sitting.

Built for Two Butts!

dividi_01

Have you ever arrived somewhere with a friend but there’s only one chair? What about a waiting room with more strangers than seating? Instead of playing an awkward game of finders keepers, you can all have a comfy place to sit with the Dividi chair. As the name suggests, this clever design divides into two distinct seating solutions, transforming from a backed chair to a stool and traditional Japanese zaisu.

Despite being highly utilitarian, it’s beautifully constructed. Birch wood with its natural fragrance and light color gives it a Scandinavian look with wood grains detail thanks to the natural processing. Additionally, the strong padding is obtained using field fabric, with a thick and consistent texture, made by the Danish international company Kvadrat.

Something Borrowed, Something New

axyl_01

AXYL is an all new collection from LAYER for the Allermuir brand, but it might look like something you’ve already seen before… and that’s precisely its appeal.

Its a sophisticated combination of recognizable elements and strong geometries – like the A-frame typology and Mid-Century wrap-around shell. A new twist, however, is an entirely unique Y-frame, injection moulded shell designed to envelope the user, and optional cushion.

The recycled aluminium in the Y-frame of the chairs uses just 5% of the energy required to create new aluminium and also offers significant cost savings. The chair shells, stool tops and café table tops are available in a variety of low-impact materials, including recycled wood fiber, reclaimed timber and recycled nylon, offering an efficient way of reusing waste products from the furniture industry.

Designer: Benjamin Hubert (LAYER) for Allermuir

Seating You Wish You Could Strum

Hippokamp_00

Inspired by the Greek mythological creature of a similar name, the Hippokamp chair is an abstract interpretation of a seahorse’ iconic shape. Intentionally intricate, this artistic take on lounge seating almost looks more instrument than furniture. Its many taut cords of the seat, back and footrest, which support the user, give it an interesting harp-like look that’s sure to garner second glances.

Construction consists of laminated birch veneer individually oiled and waxed, and approx 85 meters polyester line.

Dimensions: H. 125 cm. W. 100 cm. L. 105 cm

The Maximalist Daybed

The massive Baron Daybed by Rair Exterior is unapologetically in your face! Its substantial footprint and surprising height make it the focal point of any poolside, patio or entranceway. The triangular back provides visual separation and privacy between sides. While it may not be demure or subtle, it’s still refined thanks to its elegant shape, leather-like water-resistant material, and pure cane construction that looks almost like carbon fiber.

A Well-balanced Work Chair

muista_00

That trend of sitting on exercise balls at work sure seems to have fizzled. Perhaps it’s because it made offices look like jungle gyms! Now you can get the same core-building benefits in a more compact, handsome package thanks to Muista.

The design allows for interchangeable saddle and bench seating positions, balance exercise, muscle stimulation – important factors that can boost creativity and health at work. Composed of a single piece of bent plywood and topped with a cozy pad in customizable colors, it’s as sturdy as it is comfy. As an added bonus, an integrated soft rope connects the lower supports and is a perfect place to prop your feet and perfect your balance!

Designer: Aurimas Lazinskas & Saulius Sestavickas
