VIST is a contract-made chair that takes advantage of the unique structural versatility and durability of molded urethane. The design focuses on thinness, utilizing the natural form and beauty found in the skeletal structures of living things. This chair achieves a natural form by tracing a continuous figure that follows the body across the seat, armrest, and backrest. For a contract-made chair, in addition to high durability, the chair's usage applications also had to be considered. Strength testing to measure how people press their backs against the chair showed that it is capable of supporting up to roughly 120 kgf of resistance.
