MYchair

MYchair, the new lounge chair from Ben van Berkel / UNStudio was presented for the first time at Orgatec 2008 in Cologne, from 21st to 25th October.

"A furnishing sculpture, alone or in a group. Inviting and comfortable, perfect for a cosy read, for lounging and relaxing. Sloping, rounded and straight surfaces create an intriguing new aspect from every angle. A whole new slant on furnishing." - Walter Knoll

MYchair is the first chair designed by Ben van Berkel/UNStudio and is described as a real architect’s chair.

“The architectural approach to furniture is different from that of the industrial designer as the architect begins with the space and the environment that the chair will become a part of. All the details of the chair are considered for their spatial effects. This architectural approach to furniture is connected with a very personal ideology of space.” - Ben van Berkel
