Minimal Chair Design: SIA

View all 6 Photos

Elegant design meets creativity.

At a glance, the SIA chair looks like a beautifully minimalist piece of furniture any design lover would proudly display in a modern interior. Yet by stepping closer and interacting with the product, one realizes the ingenuity of the design. Created by Sydney-based designer Tom Fereday, the SIA chair takes inspiration from traditional bearings. The adjustable backrest offers a new take on classic seating while also ensuring optimum comfort. Graceful and stylish, the minimal chair has slender stainless steel frame as well as a minimized seat and backrest.

Made of solid ash with a black finish, the wooden sections add a sculptural accent to the frame. Solid bronze self-lubricating sleeve bearings provide structural support to the backrest while also allowing for a smooth angle adjustment. The chair has a practical stackable design, offering the perfect blend of style and function. Created with convenience in mind, the product allows for minimal shipping volume as well as easy repairing or end of life recycling. Awarded a Mercedes-Benz design award, the SIA chair has will make its debut in March 2018, at NAU Design. Photographs© Tom Fereday.
