Product description

Kya – saddle-fast nonchalance

The saddle served as inspiration for bar stool Kya.

You can sit on Kya normally, or you can sit on it like a saddle. It therefore enables the user to change positions and to play around with the different possibilities. The individual leather sections are connected by means of plain but distinctive double stitching which gives the bar stool its characteristic saddle-look. The vibrancy of the material and the artisan workmanship involved in creating the stool give Kya its special charm. And this charm, in turn, creates a warm and friendly atmosphere – whether at the hotel bar, in an urban club or in a modern home.

Concept

Looking at the equestrian form of Kya bar-stool, it isn’t hard to see where Eva Paster and Michael Geldmacher of the Neuland design duo got their inspiration from. The exciting thing about transposing the shape of a saddle onto a bar-stool is that it allows the person sitting on it to change position, from the time-honoured perch to a real rider’s straddle; a welcome side effect of this variability is that it is also good for the back. To underline the horse-riding heritage of the model, the leather seat is composed of three individual sections of leather joined using distinctive double-stitching. Available in three heights as a bar-stool, kitchen stool, and stool seat, Kya comes either on a wooden or a steel frame.
