Product description

stretched comfort

While the elegant, tautly upholstered exterior sits on either a delicate wire frame, Leya’s interior is soft and inviting like a large cushion: in this way, Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss’s chair design is the result of combining opposites.

The Leya bench (available at 140 cm, 160 cm, 180 cm, 200 cm, 220 cm, 240 cm, 260 cm, 280 cm or 300 cm length) rests on a wire frame so lithe that the piece appears far lighter and smaller than it actually is. The Leya Bench is also available without backrest.

Width: 140 / 160 / 180 / 200 / 220 / 240 / 260 / 280 / 300 cm
Height: 85 cm
Depth: 57 cm
Seat height: 47 cm

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.
