Entry Description

Kite is a compact armchair designed with commercial and hospitality spaces in mind and in particular small spaces. Attempts to make an armchair small normally leads one to think of gradual elimination of the backrest to create a bench-like furniture piece. Kite takes up minimal space while offering the chair’s user a bit of calm and security. The backrest and seat are independent parts, with shallow and deep seats and lower and taller backs available for use in combination, according to the size of the space and degree of privacy desired.
