  • …I love it!!!

    iarita says:
  • Beautiful!!

    scottallyn says:
  • Awesome !!

    Probably one of the best projects I have seen in a while ! I think it’s an example of what design is supposed to be .. fucking clever and fucking beautiful. Too much quasi-art rubbish is being made nowdays.

    Cr says:
  • Way to much form. No freshness.

    M says:
  • estetically great but…does it is really comfortable to sit on this seat? on a serie of tubes? I’d like to try…

    Silvia says:
  • nice, but I can’t see the “f…… clever” part

    noes' says:
  • It is a nice! I do have concerns about it’s comfort. I also agree with Scott about too much f….. quasi-art design being produce.

    Rome says:
  • Brilliant..

    Penghao says:
  • It looks more suited as an outdoor bench, not so much an indoor chair, as its form suggests.

    leowmc says:
  • wow….

    Ajay Sekar says:
  • How is the aluminium and wood joined…?
    If its glued, the products sucks.
    Anything else…good product i guess.
