MYchair :: Walter Knoll

Categories: Modern Decor + Objects, News + Events + Contests

This sculptural lounge chair from furniture giant Walter Knoll pushes the envelope of modern furniture design.  A recent recipient of the coveted Red Dot Design Award: Best of the Best, MYchair offers up a dynamic and expressive form.  Straight lines give way to curves, concave and convex forms appear depending on your angle – I love this sense of playfulness!  The bold upholstery really accentuates this, as well.

Though its avant-garde appearance may deter some, I think this chair is quite versatile.  I'd love to see it in an actual home.  Do you think the MYchair would work in "realistic" spaces?  What about your home?  Share your thoughts!

  1. They look cool…and maybe even comfortable. Not sure until I sit in it though. It might feel comfortable, but I might look awkward sitting in it? Good find.

  2. For some reason, the color definitely changes the feel of the chair… black and burnt orange with ebony tables and a sleek onyx fireplace… chrome pillars to accent.

  3. I like the way you think, Kim! I’m definitely feelin’ it. Tim – I don’t think you’d look awkward sitting in this chair, especially if it were in Kim’s world! :D
