For Italian furniture company Fornasarig, Shin Azumi has designed the KITE chair, a lounge chair that looks like a traditional box kite.
At first glance, this slender lounge appears to be too fragile to sit in. However, due to its masterly construction, the slim seat is able to support a significant weight in a comfortable and relaxed way.
The KITE chair is delicate and lightweight, while simultaneously retaining a strong structural beauty. Sitting on it, one fells embraced and like floating in the breeze.
Structure in solid beech wood; the seat has springs made with elastic webbing and could be covered in fabric and/or leather.
