Concept

Quiet in form and near endless in possibilities, Mixu is a sustainable and versatile collection of
chairs and stools that can be completely customized to suit the needs of any context,
environment, or desire. This three-part system of seat, backrest, and base can be personalized
with myriad color and texture combinations to create a silhouette whose softly rounded
geometric curves and minimal gesture create a perfect canvas for material expression. Playful
or sophisticated, demure or vibrant, polished or plush, it’s all in the selection—it’s all in your mix.
The Mixu system is available in a range of material components for almost limitless design
expressions. Seat options are available in post-industrial recycled plastic, FSC certified wood,
fabric, or leather finishes. Seats can be combined with backrest options in a plastic, fabric, or
leather and four-leg bases in either metal or FSC certified wood. A stool option with the same
size seat as the chair offers generous comfort for hospitality or contract use. The Mixu system
was designed with sustainability in mind and can be shipped disassembled to reduce its volume
and carbon footprint. Mixu can be completely disassembled for correct disposal, making this
dynamic collection a materially conscious system throughout its life cycle.
