Created by Amsterdam-based architectural design firm UNStudio for Dutch manufacturer Artifort, the Gemini Chair is an asymmetric seat which designed as individual furniture pieces which can be placed as single seating elements, in pairs or in groups of various sizes and configurations.
The generously proportioned single-surface body of the chair curves towards the floor on one side and arches upwards to form both an arm and a backrest on the other.
This contoured composition affords the user variety in seating positions and directionality: they can sit up, slouch, lounge, hang, repose or hunker, but they can also shift, twist, turn, swing around, pivot to face each other or turn towards the room.
Inspiration from designer:
The concept for the design of the chair centers on flexibility of movement, versatility in seating positions and variety in spatial experiences.
