danish-japanese design duo indoa + sveje (kyoko inoda and nils sveje) present their newest furniture product ‘knock down’ chair at galleria seno during milan design week 2012. contrasting the light pine finish, dark wood arms are sculpted with a CNC router and joined with a simple side frame. the deep profile and spacious size is ideal for a relaxing moment, further cushioned with a comfortable seat and back.
