About the Design

Designer Takeshi Nii created his masterpiece, the pioneering Ny Chair, in 1970, and its pleasingly utilitarian design is still beloved by many the world over, and won many awards since its conception. His Nychair X is in the permanent collection in New York’s MoMA. Carefully calculated seat and armrest heights, the backrest angle, and the fabric characteristics all work together to produce a cocoon-like feel for superior comfort. Lightweight at 14.5 pounds, the chair measures a mere 6 inches when folded for easy transport and storage. The seat is made of Kurashiki canvas, a durable, finely-textured, woven cotton yarn, and is removable and replaceable.
