2011 Nemschoff Chair Competition Winner
The organic wooden forms of the Musa chair, based on the flowing silhouette of a banana peel (“Musa Acuminata”), slightly conform to your individual weight distribution upon sitting. A recessed, leather-upholstered head rest and curved aluminum arm wrests add simplistic elegance while still allowing you to, say, watch Charlie Chaplin on your favorite device.
