Evaluation

Keeping the color tone of the exposed component parts uniform and neutral has enabled the design to be used in a wide range of settings. Another factor that we valued is the way it achieved a lightweight product by using polyurethane instead of costly metal. Furthermore, the uniform color helps reduce the visual noise when combining different materials. The small and discreet wheels as well as the stackability of the chairs demonstrate the meticulously planned design that offers functionality in a variety of contexts.
