We ran across this elegant and highly original looking furniture piece currently known on the design market as The Cowrie Chair. Inspired by the concave lines of sea shells, the creative team behind Made in Ratio envisioned a home product that stands out due to its modern flowing lines. Highly adaptable to a variety of contemporary spaces, the piece caught our undivided attention.

Despite its charming and seemingly simple form, the manufacturing process of this stylish chair design came with its challenges: “The curvilinear forms are the result of an extensive research and innovation process that bridges the handmade with the digital. Sweeping lines are displayed in a gentle, single surface monocoque fold“, explained the designers at Made in Ratio. The all-in-one structure, formed in Ash faced plywood with either a natural or ebonised finish, comes in both an elegant rocking lounger and a rock solid easy chair.
