Phoenix Chair

This iconic piece of furniture pays a respectful tribute to the legendary architect Rudolph Schindler, a pioneer whose architectural modernism seamlessly integrated organic forms with unparalleled functionality. Drawing inspiration from Schindler's visionary philosophy, the Phoenix chair ingeniously melds the robust character of aluminium with the weightlessness of its seat, creating a harmonious marriage of strength and elegance.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Phoenix chair boasts a unique composition comprising two gracefully curved aluminium sheets. This symmetrical assembly serves a triple purpose, functioning as the chair's base, structure, and seat. Despite its outward appearance of structural rigidity, the chair surprises with its exceptional comfort, thanks to the carefully upholstered seat and backrest – a technical achievement that masterfully combines the delicacy of aluminium with its inherent strength.
