Stellar Works and Nendo's Oki Sato Pair Up on a Slim Chair for Hospitality


There exist innumerable armchairs and sofas for lobbies and lounges, but well-executed designs for narrow spaces such as corridors and elevator lobbies are in short supply. Kite seeks to remedy that. Oki Sato of Nendo designed the compact armchair with a powder-coated steel frame and upholstered shell with petite commercial and hospitality spaces in mind. Its enveloping curved backrest is star of the show, yielding a design as much about leaning back as sitting down. The seat and back are independent of one another and can be specified in different combinations—shallow plus tall, deep plus short, etc.—to suit the available space and the degree of privacy desired.
