The new soft seating by Jonathan Prestwich uses the beauty of overlapping transparencies to create a range that is stylish and intimate
February 4th, 2013
In sculpting Mayze, Prestwich was inspired by the beauty of overlapping transparencies and the natural forms created through tensioned fabric.
The back of the chair is created through structural technical knitting, and this combines with cushions to create the soft and responsive character of the Mayze. Quite literally, the Mayze “holds its arms out to visitors”.
Born from an ambition to structure maximum comfort from minimum materials, its constructional minimalism reduces its environmental impact.
The technical knitted back can be black or almond, and seat cushions can be upholstered in a broad range of fabrics, vinyls and leathers. The tubular frame is finished in black EPPC or polished chrome.
The Mayze range includes a chair – swivel chair, 4-legs and 4-legs wheeled, and a lounge chair.
Every product in the Mayze range is striking for its ability to invoke intimacy and high style in equal measure.
