brazilian designers carolina armellini and paulo biancchi of fetiche design studio created the 'exo chair'
for brazilian home design organization schuster. the piece serves as as an exoskeleton for the human being,
emulating the casing of an insect. wooden triangles form the protective outer layer while the seat of the chair
is fashioned from leather, and the legs from wood dowels. the 'exo chair' is a frame to support and protect the human form,
providing a cradling space for the sitter.
