Upon Chair by Sylvain Willenz for Zilio A&C
Once upon a time, there was a perfectly symmetrical chair...
From Belgian designer Sylvain Willenz, "Upon" aims high. With an artfully curved back (in Ash or plywood), a slim metal frame, and a clever detail that makes the backrest appear to levitate, Upon is an archetypal object.
There are pragmatic advantages to the streamlined back and hidden attachment: the design keeps frame and back aligned on a single plane, enabling Upon to stack up high and neat.
The base chair is just the beginning. The Upon family also includes a bar stool. An armchair version is coming soon.
