Product description

We are now introducing MOIA with a swivel base that creates a surprising and elegant contrast to the monumental shape. The MOIA chair is designed to close comfortably around you and acts as a small room that allows you to enjoy a moment of peace and contemplating. From the side the MOAI chair has a unique and slightly naive expression reminiscent of the massive sculptures of faces on Easter Island.

Concept

The Moai chair’s large shell is formally inspired by the soft shapes acquired by square bricks and other stone after years of rolling back and forth on the beach. This highlights the chair’s function as an ‘unplugged’ retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The Moia chair is designed to close comfortably around you when you sit in it. It acts as a quiet little room on four legs that lets you have some peaceful moments for yourself. The distinctive notches around the armrest give it personality and a comfortable support when you are getting up. From the side they give the Moai chair a unique, slightly naive expression that’s reminiscent of the massive sculptures of faces on Easter Island. The chair’s upholstered shell rests on a simple metal cross that follows the chair’s soft form and leads down into four turned wooden legs. The Moai chair is a haven in a busy and chaotic time – like a cave to hide away in for a while.
