Essay

A bent steel tubular frame consisting of four elements that fit together, and a textile covering stretched taut on this structure – these are the components of Reversible. The special feature of this formally simple seating lies in the fact that you can transform it from a chair to an armchair with just a few easy operations. You simply remove the reversible textile element, and reassemble the frame by turning the back legs. With the two colours of the covering, you can create four different versions of the seat, each of them stackable.

Comment by the nominators:
A cleverly sophisticated design which skilfully exploits the properties of the materials used. It achieves its objective with a bare minimum of material and technical resources.
