MYchair by UNStudio

MYchair sketchMYchair 1

MYchair is the first chair designed by Ben van Berkel from UNStudio for client Walter Knoll. Came in height 800mm, depth 755mm + width 865mm, the chromed steel bar frame with foam seat upholstered with Trevira and Kvadrat fabrics or Walter Knoll leather is a real architect’s chair.

'All the details of the chair are considered for their spatial effects.
In the case of Ben van Berkel this spatial awareness is connected to his idea of the ‘after image’, referring to the capacity of 3-D objects to produce many different impressions when seen from different angles.

These continuously changing silhouettes result in a kaleidoscopic experience, achieved in the MYchair by the faceted arrangement of the soft elements, the inward and outward curves of the chrome frame and the duo-tones of the upholstering. The facet shapes of the soft part of the chair are echoed in the curves of the frame supporting it; the bottom is reflected in the sides; and the room itself is reflected in the polished chrome of the support frame.'

I suspect this chair requires very long legs to be enjoyable and that the kaleidoscopic experience offered by the frame will be minimal...
