Polygon easy chair

Ever since we first began to engage with design, we were fascinated with the standard modernist typology of chairs with modest dimensions that meet all functional parameters, without burdening the space with their bulkiness.

We have explored a series of alternatives that are in line with these values, but also offer a new formal approach. Polygon retains all traditional elements of a modernist chair, but deconstructs them, creating new relations between them. The form of the bent steel bars of the structure, the seat and the backrest are coordinated via a triangular geometry. The composition of the triangle is accentuated when viewed from the side, but once the observer begins to move, these forms transform into hexagons and more complex polygons. We have continued to develop Polygon in close cooperation with prostoria, and have launched a new version of the chair that retains all features of the original design, but in an improved form. The resulting product has a somewhat defamiliarizing effect, seeming both familiar and distinctly contemporary.

Numen For / Use
Designers of Polygon easy chair

Numen/For Use is an internationally acclaimed design collective led by product designers Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljković. For the past 20 years the group has been active globally in the fields of industrial and spatial design, scenography and conceptual art. Numen’s distinctive experimental vigor and interdisciplinary approach is reflected in the variety of objects and spaces they design for Prostoria. Their visual language is consciously reduced and implicit, and their concepts are strongly based in form and formal expression, while grounded in respect for local modernist heritage and its wide societal impact. Their designs for Prostoria include Polygon, Oblique and Trifidae easy chairs, Oblikant, Bik, Dobra and Osmo chairs, and Revolve, Layout, Absent, Segment, Combine and Fade sofas.
