yonoh: arc chair

‘arc chair’ by yonoh creative studio

valencia-based design studio yonoh creative, has developed the ‘arc chair’, a seating object conceived for versatile use in home and contract projects. its backrest is based on the ergonomic proportions of the human dorsum, offered in a multitude of colours or chrome, and features a frame made of bent steel rod. the seat pan and backrest are molded in plywood which are available in natural wood, lacquer or upholstered finishes. the possibility of multiple material / color combinations and its ability to stack, makes the furniture highly adaptable to any environment and interior style.

‘arc chair’ was presented as a part of feria hábitat during valencia disseny week 2012.
