‘Tria’ chair by Catharina Lorenz and Steffen Kaz for Colé

The young Italian furniture brand Colé has teamed up with two German-born Milan-based designers Catharina Lorenz and Steffen Kaz, founders of Lorenz*Kaz studio, to create this three-legged, plywood chair called ‘Tria.’ Made of curved plywood and available in either natural oak, stained black oak finish or veneer, the form of the chair was inspired by the complexity of works of M. C. Escher which frequently featured impossible and infinite constructions and tessellations.

More about the design:

 

‘Tria is a chair that recalls the impossible forms of Dutch graphic artist and engraver Maurits Escher, defining itself in a game of twists and elusive leak. The shell-shaped corolla, composed of three equal elements assembled together, lends itself to accommodate a sequence of colours chasing each other. It can be used in two different seating positions, center or side (right or left).’
