With the 'Layer Chair' Morphosis Design Studio created and designed something unique but with a throw-back to the old 'Riempie' chairs. The 'Layer Chair' was designed to not only be viewed from the front but also from the back, as many chairs are used as dining chairs and are mostly seen from the back. The Iroko/Nigerian Teak used is tough, dense and very durable. It is one of the most naturally durable timbers because it contains natural oil and therefore needs no preservatives - oiling or varnishing. The texture of the Iroko in combination with the Polyester weave creates a piece of furniture that looks solid but is still modern. The polyester weave highlights certain parts of the design and is shown off against the light Iroko timber.
