Leya Swing Seat

In furniture terms, the swing is nothing less than the definition of happiness: there’s nothing more relaxing than rocking back and forth – and now, you can enjoy these glimpses of weightless bliss at home, too.

Designers Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss have taken a Leya seat shell, added metal eyelets and leather straps, and slung it on two stable lines.

The result is a swing seat that doesn’t take up much space, looks light and graceful, and offers all the comfort of a full Leya armchair. But enough talk: you’ve simply got to try it yourself to understand how deeply satisfying an experience it is…

Product family


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.
