The Ray chair by Lera Moiseeva has an intriguing profile
Lera Moiseeva's "Ray" chair certainly has an eye-catching profile! The Russian designer will officially introduce her new chair during the "Naturalist show" (attempting to "capture Nature into an artifact") at the Stockholm Light & Furniture Fair, in the Greenhouse section. "The higher a stem of a plant reaches to the light, the deeper its roots grow into the ground. The nature of this chair works according to the same principle; the legs of the chair work as roots, that give life to the stable and firm seat. The Ray chair is made from tubular steel and can be used indoor and outdoor.
