Phebos Xenakis Spotlights The Karekla Chair

Phebos Xenakis, the thinktank behind the displayed design chair by Phebos Xenakis explains, The Karekla-chair is a hybrid chair created from a series of neglected wooden shells. A simple adjustment of cutting the shell into segments made it into this one of a kind design, upcycling it and giving it a new life. When one decides to sit in the chair, the segments will succumb to the weight of the user and create a comfortable seating. After standing back up again the shell returns to it’s original shape. It's unusual and abstract appearance makes the user uncertain of it's primary function bringing a sort of comical twist to the whole concept. .
