TriWing integrates four different postures in one continuous shape. By flipping the chair along the longitudinal axis the furniture changes its posture and appearance and unfolds its multiple applications. TriWing can be used as dining-chair, lounge-chair, reading-chair or deck-chair. The seat height of the various positions is related to the particular use. The double-curved shape incorporates the ergonomic demands and generates at the same time the necessary stiffness and stability of the chair. Due to the individual weight of the user TriWing adapts slightly in shape and absorbs the impact of the tangible forces.

The chair aims at a playful use and is produced in a digital workflow from design to production. TriWing generates a perception that is associated with handmade products due to its materiality and tactile impression. CNC-milled from laminated beech, the lightweight piece debuted during the IMM in Cologne 2011. TriWing is produced exclusively on demand – taking into account the individual parameters of the client (body height and weight, length of leg…).
