the ‘nuno chair’ by german designer emilia lucht of the studio, we love eames is a collapsible piece that folds to either a stool or chair with only one hand motion. the project was based on research that ergonomic seating comfort is achieved through the connection between movements and changes in body position. in response to this, the incorporated bench structure makes it possible to sit in a way that is most comfortable. the furniture is comprised of a flexible backrest made of felt, which is constructed in way that allows for varying positions and is therefore easily adaptable. the adjustable feature supports and warms the lower back, providing greater support. the ‘nuno chair’ is manufactured using natural materials – timber and felt are used in combination with bright colors and a fluid form.
