The chair is inspired by the UAE vernacular architecture and contextual materials, based on research into the dynamics of traditional forms and the space they create.
The chair is intended to be interactive and draw people to take a seat. This can be achieved by the response to motion and texture that the chair walls offer. Nada imagined the chair placed in a residential space, public space like hotels and lobbies or general office areas where people need a space to recharge.
