By Grupa

The chair’s shell is composed of two bent pieces of plywood upholstered in fabric, underneath which lies a simple structure of massive wood or metal. The armrest forms part of the seat and the whole shell appears to float independently of its relatively inconspicuous support, thus paying homage to retro furniture and the play between typologies. Monk is available in two variations, as a chair and as an armchair. Both share the same upper part of the structure, whilst the lower part (legs) is higher and upright in the chair, but lower in the armchair. Together, the two Monks merge the daily functions of work and contemplation.
