Fly Away with Kite

Kite, by Nendo for Stellar Works, resembles nothing so much as a delicate piece of Origami.

This is apropos. As that ancient art allows wondrous three-dimensional creatures and creations to emerge from a mere scrap of paper, so too does Kite seem to materialize out of thin air.

The chair’s ineffable aspect is very much by design; Kite is tailored to inhabit small spaces: “a compact chair for corridors, elevator lobbies, and entrances… for passersby to rest in for a spell or in which to have casual conversation.”

Just so, the highlight of Kite is the backrest, offering a comfy support that takes up only vertical space, while the seat is diminutive and contained.

Kite also has a modular aspect. The seat and back are independent of one another, enabling users to mix and match depending on the space.
