Kate Chair / wing chair

Kate Chair
Kate Chair

Kate Chair is the reinterpretation of the classical wing chair. Quoting the value perception and sybolism, the reinterpratation accents both his speciality and his features. He also interprets the wing chair using materials and new technologies. Being a contrast between analogical stichings as well as pillows at the seat and the innovative 3D technology of knitting of the oversized chair-back, Kate Chair appears known and familiar, next to new and not yet experienced.
The Offering of different elastic and strong knitted areas as well as the resilient metal construction is important for the comfort.
