Through folding, bending, rolling the foam material, simple yet symbolic shape is naturally formed, which becomes the seating area and the backrest of the easy chair. Maki can be used to work, rest, meet and wait ─ as a lone icon or together in different formations under the modular system. The form offers active, flexible seating along with the comfortability.
The whole piece is fully upholstered in fabric with a thin metal frame rolled and covered with molded cold foam. Its unconventional shape is one of the most challenging task meeting the highest craftsmanship.
