A winner of the Red Dot and Good Design awards, the Parabola Chair is lauded for its innovative form derived from mathematical analysis and ergonomics! The design calibrates hyperbolic paraboloids and their strong structural characteristics and minimal surface thickness to the human body to create an enveloping seat, backrest and arms. Basically, a whole lotta math went into making this thing! The result? An iconic, sculptural chair. Jump to the vid!
