Inspired by the efficient curves and ergonomics of an oar, the Leva is a solid timber chair crafted of European Ash from legal wood cutting (controlled deforestation).
The aim was to promote sustainability and to do more with less, resulting in a beautifully created wooden chair that is designed ergonomically. The Leva has steam-bent arms, using a single piece of machined timber, widening in the middle to form a comfortable, supportive backrest.
“The chair remains the archetypal furniture piece and one of the most difficult objects to design, requiring a deep understanding of form and comfort. It must be pleasing to the eye, able to fit a variety of settings from living rooms to restaurants, comfortable to sit on, and durable enough to last generations.” Mike Holland, Head of Industrial Design, Foster + Partners
