The Chair for Sitting is an original design that stems from the ambition to find a shape that can embrace, contain and communicate with a tensile system that welcomes and assists the gesture of sitting. Three distinct design languages converge through the lateral frames, resting surfaces and horizontal tubes that are brought together by the chair’s elastic heart.
The main challenge in the design process was to orchestrate the many elements of the chair in such a way that its formal identity is not subverted when the seating surface is lowered due to its use, the hollow frames allow this feature to be displayed and hint towards its manifestation through the incisions that point towards the center. All this while maintaining careful dimensional considerations as a secondary objective was to obtain all pieces necessary for its construction from a single sheet of plywood, which was met successfully.
