OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Ergonomically developed to rest the back, it is a delightful furniture to see and extremely comfortable to sit in.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
An investigation of the various species of solid wood to provide resistance was performed, the warmth of the grain and the visual impact needed resulted in the selection of certified beech from German forests. The pieces were designed and tested under conditions of heavy duty to ensure that assemblies and structure have greater durability and the best performance possible.

CHALLENGE:
It took four different prototypes after extensive work on the platform and design sketches to achieve aesthetic, style, ergonomics and the necessary strength.
