Saya wood chair by Lievore Altherr Molina
Saya collections have been proclaimed winners of the German Interior Innovation Award 2014 for the Furniture category, and presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
The Design Proclamation: Saya is a mark, a gesture, a graphic sign, rendered in wood to finish a space like a signature. Fluid in line, warm in material, its silhouette is bold, striking. The sum is more than the parts: Saya inspires inclusion in diverse environments from home to contract.
We wanted to design a chair for Arper with the home as inspiration. Home for us evokes feelings of warmth and life. Wood seemed to us the material choice best suited to express this quality. We then looked to plywood for its constructive synthesis: it allows for a surface that is continuous, fluid and lightweight.
