Chinese studio Atelier Deshaus‘ Sylph chair features a piece of continuous long tubular steel manually curved that forms the back and the legs of the seat. Chair Sylph is endowed with some characteristics of an elegant fair lady, while the word Sylph, implies in itself a lady who possesses a slim figure.
The elastic deformation specifically defined by the user when he/she weighs on the chair, initiates a unique dialogue between the chair and the sitter. The top of the front legs are intentionally expanded a little to better sustain the base panel, while downwards the legs gradually slimmed and the section deforms from a round shape to a heart shape.
