Designing the COVENTRY series I've been searching for something new not in field of shape only. Watching the human behaviour in public spaces, cafes and restaurants I tried to find a smart solution for some of customer's behaviour scenarios and for certain restaurateurs needs.
Sometimes people come up with unusual functions for the usual pieces of furniture or just use this furniture in unusual way. For example, they turn the chairs backwards or combine several chairs to group.
On the other hand restaurateurs wants to be ready for such spontaneous furniture moving. They looking for the modular furniture or furniture that has a combinatorial potential as a part of design.
In this case designer's unusual ergonomic solution can provide additional opportunities for such user interpretations. This way to create a new user experience for all categories of users.
One of such smart solutions was an armstool that is fully replicate an ergonomic proportions of the armchair in its collection except the backrest. The similar seating design has a COVENTRY bar stool as well.
The COVENTRY collection consists of three items which are the compromise between conservatism of contract furniture and a modern coziness of home furniture. You can choose any colour of cushion. Combination of wooden frame and upholstered seats called up to make both your private home space and public space of cafes more comfortable.
