Kai chair

Product description

Playing with paper, was the start of this project. If you fold a piece of paper you get a crisp edge, and if you bend it you get a gentle but tensioned curvature. I tried to fix the beauty of this natural phenomena as a chair.
The name, KAI, is a Japanese word and its pronunciation can be interpreted in several different meanings: KAI can be a “seashell”.
The oppositional two elliptical lines recall an opened seashell. KAI can be “comfort”.
KAI can be “meeting”. KAI can be “answer”.
KAI can be “pioneer”.
