Núno (Chair) by Emilia Lucht
2011 - 2012, Silver A' Furniture and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
a simple milking stool
Creativity
Recently, studies have shown that ergonomic seating comfort is achieved through the connection between movements and changes in body position. In response to this, a simple ale-bench offers your body the ability to sit in a way that is comfortable to you. The centerpiece of the chair is comprised of a flexible directional back made of felt. It is designed in a way that allows for varying positions and is therefore very adaptable. The adjustable backrest supports and warms the lower back, providing greater support. To manufacture this chair, the sustainable materials of timber and felt are used in combination with modern colours and forms. To achieve stability, a round central section is glued and laminated with two identically constructed chair legs. The front and back leg are each fixed at another angle to the seating surface. The inspiration for the design was manly found by experimentation and beauty of natural forms.

Production Technology
To manufacture this chair, the natural materials of timber and felt are used in combination with modern colours and forms. CNC and an innovative technique to stabilize the felt are instrumental in production.
