The Washington Skin Chair was designed by David Adjaye for the brand Knoll International.
British designer and architect Adjaye may be best known for the Museum of African American History in Washington D.C., but his product design is just as accomplished. At around the same time he created the museum, Adjaye also collaborated with Knoll International to come up with a series of chairs with innovative lines and premium engineering. The Washington Skin Chair was one of the most impressive results.
Available in a range of tasteful colours, the Skin Chair has been formed from nylon featuring glass reinforcement. This keeps the weight low, and has allowed Adjaye to give the piece an eye-catching shape, including slender, geometric legs, and elements which surprise and delight - but remain utterly practical. The seat stands 83cm tall, measures 46cm across, and has a depth of 51cm. Minimalist, elegant, and offering optimal stability, it will be the perfect seating option for architects, students, and anyone who wants an attractive place to rest, work, read, or socialise. Part of Adjaye's first furniture collection, it shows how architectural flair can be translated seamlessly to streamlined home product design.
