Cadeira 9 / furniture

Cadeira 9
Cadeira 9

The 9 Chair was designed keeping in mind the desire of promoting interaction between user and product, resulting in a chair that adapts itself to different contexts. Through fairly simple mechanisms, using one single articulation point, the chair’s back can be folded, turning it into a bench that sits two people. Another simple operation transforms the product into a stool. Conceptually, we’ve tried to reach the limits of tubular steel, often used in furniture design, making it the protagonist of this object. The lines formed by the tubes repeat themselves in space, giving the chair an ever-changing graphic quality.
