You Chair

2019

58 x 44 x 73 cm – Seat height: 47 cm

Lacquered plywood and fabric

"The You chair is our newborn chair. I was looking for it everywhere but couldn’t find it anywhere. I finally decided to design it. Observing the casual seating attitude of people nowadays, I decided to create a chair that forces us to sit in an appropriate and elegant way. Your hands are lifted naturally by the height of the armrests, your back becomes straight and the base's shape prevents you from swinging."
