Motek Chair by Luca Nichetto for Cassina

View all 17 Photos

Inspired by the art of paper folding, Motek Chair has two such folds of its own, such that the resulting three panels form the seat, the chair back, and a cute decorative flourish at the very end. From the chair’s clean profile, one can almost make out the metaphoric fold lines, which are a subtle design accent, on the chair’s very surface. Also mimicking the dog-eared corners of papers, the seat, which comes in varieties of gray felt or black leather, has a gentle lip that makes lounging in Luca Nichetto’s design even more comfortable. The pressure-molded construction keeps the chair lightweight, as do the sleek legs of the chair that are available as wooden additions or metal accents.
