This string chair invites a second look, a wish to try it out and perhaps even a love-hate reaction. The chair boasts strong clean lines – literally – for the seating area and backrest are series of taut strings. The two groups of strings neatly interlock at the junction of the seating area and the backrest much like the warp and weft of looms. The design certainly begs the question – cushion or no?

The designer is egawa+zbryk whose skillful use of bent birch plywood, nylon cord and stainless steel has given his creation its curving form coupled with straight lines and pleasing balanced colors. The three seater or single chairs surely will capture everyone’s attention in any contemporary home. – Via
