The Naibu Chair is connected to meditation, a practice that aims to make you reflect and bring you awareness. The design of the chair and its characteristics are constructed to either work as a reminder or facilitator for this practice but it can also be seen as a chair that more symbolically carries a story that aims to spark reflections.
Form as a reminder
The red cushion that is integrated under the seat functions as a reminder for the everyday activity of taking a seat. This chair supports and comforts you on the way down and it lifts you on the way up.
Form as a facilitator
The back of the chair is designed to facilitate you in the practice of meditation. The straight angle of the back of this chair directs you to the right position and when the cushion is compressed it helps you feel the weight of your feet against the floor.
Form as a symbol
The design language and the shape of the legs of the chair is inspired by the Japanese Torii gate, a gate that symbolizes transition. When you sit down on this chair you enter an
in-between moment, a transformative space where reflections can emerge.
