Aka Chair by Skitsch with plexiglass structure and legs in solid bleached oak

The ‘Aka’ chair family got a new sophisticated member: the armchair version is an answer to a constructional challenge of a wooden base, that embraces the plastic seat shell.

The joint detail had to be especially well-thought, because the seating of one version of the chair is materialised in transparent polycarbonate.

More about the design:

 

‘A family of hybrid chairs: the lightness of a comfortable polycarbonate shell, available in different colours, meets the strength of solid oak wood legs. This series, perfectly suitable for either at-home or public use, is comprised of a four leg armchair, a star leg chair, a star leg armchair and a tall and short stool.’
