Truss Chairs / Home Furniture (product)

Truss Chairs
Truss Chairs

The Truss chair concept takes its inspiration from the traditional Indian bed 'Khatiya'. The concept can be defined as a perfect combination of engineering and art where the rigid truss structure makes it strong but portable and the colourful weaved seating makes it aesthetically and emotionally appealing.The weaving is done using elastic based cotton fiber which is stretchable and gives a cozy feeling to the user and the patterns represent an Indian taste of colour and tradition. These patterns can be customized to suit any colour scheme thus widening its scope globally.The concept is designed by considering human ergonomics and comfort.
