Product description

It’s a proven fact that swaying back and forth in a rocking chair puts you in a good mood. The Leya Rocking Lounge Chair lets you do just that. It’s like the Leya Swing Seat, but on rockers, and has all of the same comfort as other members of the Leya family. Designers Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss took plenty of time to make the chair just right, especially when it came to shaping the rockers. The curved bands allow the perfect amount of movement while the classic Leya Lounge Chair seating shell offers all the usual stability and comfort. Width: 70 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.
