Tensegrity Red / home furniture

Tensegrity Red
Tensegrity Red

Under the light, the shadow of straight lines and cold metals forms a web-like trap. Tensegrity Red gets softened with human participation. It has an unique design of knitted net and a separation of rods connected only with springs. It is designed in the way when withstanding any outside force, the chair divides all the strength on its fulcrums and reaches a balance of tension which supports sitters according to their weight. Those springs help readjust the chair to fit different body shapes and curves into an organic form that fulfills the aim of ergonomics. Each part is indispensible, flexible, and adaptable to meet different demands.
