The Nychair, produced in Japan since 1970, has been loved and admired the world over. Its simple, beautiful and functional design has earned it accolades and awards. Minimialist in design the chair can be easily folded and transported from room to room, brought to an outside patio or easily tucked away when space is needed in tighter quarters.
Ergonomically Designed for Comfort
The height of the seat, angle of the backrest and position of the elbow rests are set to maximize the ergonomics of the body to provide the most comfort. It perfectly envelops and supports the body.
Crafted from top-grade Kurashiki sailcloth in a factory producing the canvas material since 1888 - the seat cover is durable and can easily support the user's weight and the structure of the chair. Moreover, the seat cover is removable for cleaning and does not create static electricity.
Sold in over 40 countires, the Nychair X continues to be produced in a factory in Japan where years of expertise ensure the finest materials are used and that special care is paid to the elbow rests and bends of the tubing. The chair has received numerous awards but most notably the Good Design Award in 1986 and then the Long Life Design Award in 1997.
Designed by Takeshi Nii
Takeshi Nii the principle designer of the NychairX, was the third generation owner of a company manufacturing Kendo equipment in Tokushima Prefecture. Unsatisfied with the chairs available on the market Takeshi set out with the aim to "make a chair like the curry rice everybody loves". That is to say, an everyday chair that would be reasonable priced, well constructed with a beautiful shape and relaxing comfort in mind.
