The Alpha Chair

Iron, solid oak, leather

h78 x 36,5 x 44 cm

I designed this chair for Rota-Lab.

 

I wanted to design a simple, lightweight, resistent and comfortable chair. 

I called it THE ALPHA CHAIR, because I thought that it had to be essential, with nothing besides what it needed to function. 

 

The first prototype had a flat oak seat, the chair was overall comfortable but a person once seated would slowly slide towards the front of the seat. A diagonal seat would solve the problem, and i decided to plane a whole solid piece of oak this way. 

 

It has become a really confortable chair, with a very simple clean design.
