Grouse / Chair


Grouse is a chair designed for people that are looking for a comfortable, small and versatile chair. Its main features are the back and the arm. Made of a flexible fabric, the back shapes the user in many positions while the elongated arm gives support even when the user arm is behind its back. Because of these features, Grouse is ideal for multitask people and for the modern home office that requires the use of different devices. However, it still can be used to just appreciate the moment in a porch or yard. The geometric structure of Grouse is made of solid wood that uses little material and is easy to build and assemble.
