Pagoda is a collection of chairs inspired by the classic café chairs of 19th century Vienna. The chair is supremely light and compact with a structure that has been reduced to its very essence. The chair consists of only six pieces – delivering good craftsmanship and efficiency while allowing multiple material configurations. The chair’s circular seat stems from rationalization while symbolizing the “Way of Nature” or “oneness” in Chinese culture. Cantilevered arms and back subtly reference Pagoda gates, giving the chair its personality while also eliminating the need for an arm and armless version.
