Myko Wood

Year: 2018
Manufacturer: Fogia

Like a perfectly tailored suit, snug, yet relaxed and with an elastic band that tightens and highlights the waist and shape. Myko is inspired both by classic wooden chairs and chairs from the rococo period, but first and foremost clothing.

The method used to upholster the chair creates wrinkles in the back, a contrasting feature in comparison to the otherwise smooth and tight look. A lot of furniture for public environments are designed with a strict form language, which in a lot of cases becomes too strict for home environments as opposed to furniture designed for home environments are perceived to be too facile for public environments.

Myko is a result of a balancing act in designing for both home- and public environments.

The wooden base gives it a classic but still unique appearance. Myko is also available with a castor wheel base, that makes it a perfect home-office chair and a steel base, based on traditional wooden chairs with a crossbar between the legs.
