The Voxel Chair is the perfect conceptual architectural piece for any space. Based on the Vertex Chair, a former piece by Vondom. It presents a unique structural shape, angular and faceted, only possible due to a production by injection molding. Its weight is distributed in a balanced way due to its smartly designed shape. Its lightweight body makes it easy to transport and arrange. The armchair is a minimal simple yet voluminous stackable chair that is faceted just in the perfect places for comfort, just in the right angles for hyper-strength, imbuing the correct creases for beauty, and just the few merging and converging lines for purity.
Made of injected polypropylene with fiber glass. Available in several colors. Item suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
