A hard shell, with a soft core – Birgit Hoffmann’s design is a fusion of contrasts. Leya is a perfectly formed chair featuring an elegant, firmly upholstered outer shell on conical wooden legs, which are held together by a metal ring. This ring can be painted to match the colour of the chair cover. 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.
