The visually intriguing Peach Easy Chair was created by Annabella Hevesi to introduce and experiment with a kind of mechanical joint. The unique chair features an innovative mechanical joint solution that allows the foam to be shaped in a completely new and refreshing manner.

Why is it noteworthy?

The joint enables the foam to be shaped without cutting or casting – the first method creates a lot of waste, and the second method is quite expensive. Instead, a new ‘tufting’ technique was employed to distort the foam and create the shell out of the chair.

What we like

  • Not only reduces waste but also offers a mechanical connection between the components, eliminating the need for glue

What we dislike

  • The chair offers a slouched posture, which may not be ergonomic for the user

At first glance, the Tone Chair grabs your attention for a variety of reasons, primarily because it is oh-so-simple in its form, and yet so solid in its character. The Tone Chair was the result of the exploration of a simple metallic tube and bending process on the part of Filipic.

Why is it noteworthy?

Four tubes, and and two pieces of sheet metal were used to build the chair. The two pieces of sheet metal were used to form the seat and the backrest, while the four metallic tubes were utilized to construct the legs of the chair.

What we like

  •  A smooth and linear furniture design whose various components effortlessly merge together
  • Features bright and loud yellow, which adds manifolds of character to the stark and minimal chair

What we dislike

Designed by Ali Shoieb, the Nice chair is designed to be a ‘disassembled chair’.  Space-consuming furniture is the bane of tiny modern-day apartments with space constraints. Hence, Shoieb wanted to design a furniture piece that does not occupy too much space and can be assembled and disassembled with ease.

Why is it noteworthy?

The minimal wooden chair can function as an ordinary chair to sit on, or even a rocker that can be moved back and forth. The rounded bottom edges of the Nice chair allow it to rock back and forth, creating a harmonious lull that could guide anyone to fall asleep. On, the other end, you can slide in a tabletop between the ridges on the arms of the chair, transforming it into a convenient space to work in.

What we like

  • Multifunctional furniture design

What we dislike

  • There is no way to stop the chair from rocking while working

Conceptualized by SUNRIU Design, the 6-alloy chair doesn’t look like any of the regular or traditional chairs you see on the market, or anywhere around you. It looks as if a stool and a chair had a love child – resulting in the intriguing-looking 6-alloy chair.

  • Not a real tangible product
