In the past, nesting chairs have always had a very technical appearance. The trend towards more homey offices has created a need for simpler and cozy looking nesting chairs. WA takes a new approach by using one homey shell instead of fragmented components (seat, frame and back) and therefore sets a new archetype within this product category.
A nature-inspired pattern was used to further accentuate WA’s friendly and harmonic appearance.
It comes in 5 calm colors, offering additional comfort with an optional seat cushion. The pure appearance of the chair with its different base options makes it fit in various public and private spaces.
