Intanso is a sleek and lightweight side chair designed to stand out with its unique material choice and form. The chair's striking silhouette is the result of a custom-molded carbon fiber seat and back, chosen for its high strength-to-weight ratio allowing for a slim profile with the necessary strength. This material was selected not only for its physical properties but also for its aerodynamic visuals.

The robust steel frame provides a sturdy foundation, while the integration of semi-flexible spacers allows the carbon fiber to naturally flex alongside the user's motion. This approach to construction not only enhances the chair's visual appeal but also its functional ergonomics.

The chair has undergone ergonomic testing to ensure it supports a wide range of human postures and activities. Each curve and contour is crafted to complement the natural form of the body, providing support and comfort whether one is focused on work or in a moment of relaxation. The compound curves of the chair do not simply exist for aesthetics; they reinforce the structural integrity and offer an embracing comfort that wraps around the user.
