YC1 Chair by Mikiya Kobayashi

is a minimalist design created by Japan-based designer Mikiya Kobayashi. The back rest of the chair is comprised of ropes stitched directly into the framework of the chair, providing comfortable tension, and a very unique characteristic.

What you would think holds the seat does not. Industrial designers take a new approach towards bearing structures and creates a chair that appears to float.

The name comes from the two elements, wood and metal, that the two designers use for Mellom – a look “in between” classical wood and futuristic metal designs.
