"As designers the chair represents a highly satisfying marriage of traditional formalism and some of the most advanced design, prototyping and fabrication techniques currently available to us. While the initial form of the chair sprung from a series of pencil sketches, the final form is a result of countless digital design optimizations, scale 3D prints, and full scale mock-ups." 


In order to maintain a low, stable center of gravity and to structurally support the seat's dramatic cantilever, the thickness of the chair's individual "ribs" vary considerably in sectional profile. This provides the required strength, stability, and balance, while adding visual interest to the overall form.

"We wanted to create a chair that was simultaneously sculptural yet precisely engineered. Minimal yet warm and alive."
