Product description

sensuous cosiness

Sometimes, we all need a little comfort: and that’s where the new Leya Lounge Chair comes into play. With Leya the designers Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleys have created a place to sit with a glass of wine of an evening and just let the time drift by – with a matching stool to make things more comfortable.

While the soft interior upholstery makes sitting into a sensuous experience, with its premium look, Leya will soon be your favourite piece of furniture; it looks especially fetching in dark leather – whether as a single or double piece.

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.
