Product description

hard shell, soft core

Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss design is a fusion of contrasts. Leya is a perfectly formed chair featuring an elegant, firmly upholstered outer shell on a delicate wire frame or on a solid wooden frame. With its congenial mix of material and colour, Leya has all the makings of a unique designer piece. To sit down in the chair is to indulge the senses further still. The inner padding accommodates your body much like a fluffy pillow and, in doing so, reveals Leya’s soft core to the chair user.

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.
