Gently enveloping the seated body shape, the Nuez armchair is nonetheless also characterised by its technical look. The idea behind the design was to develop a wave-like seat that appears to be made from a sheet of paper. In reality, the shell combines fabric and thermoplastic materials to create a harmonious unit. The injection-moulded shell has a three-dimensional undulating surface and gently rounded edges. The upholstery bears witness to the complex manufacturing process.
Statement by the Jury
The ingenious, technically sophisticated design of the Nuez armchair manages to combine contrasting materials to create a harmonious whole.
