Emerging French designer Rémi Bouhaniche has unveiled a chair that he created by folding "a trapezoidal shape of foam and fabric like origami".
The Toa chair, produced by French brand Ligne Roset, has a natural or black-stained solid ash base and is reinforced by two mechanically soldered steel frames.
The chair, along with a companion footstool, is upholstered in polyester, with a seat cushion made of high-resilience polyurethane foam.
"To create the Toa, I folded a trapezoidal shape of foam and fabric like origami," said the designer. "I placed this cushiony piece on a wooden structure to make it more elegant and light."
The chair's name is derived from "toi" – the French word for "you." Bouhaniche said he wanted to create a chair that was focused on the user's comfort.
"It was my first inspiration: how to create furniture that is close to all of us, that makes our home more comfortable, more personal," said the designer. "Comfort is a timeless and universal feeling that touches everyone's culture."
