’MYTO’ Cantilever Chair

A three-way collaboration between designer, manufacturer, and chemical company gives birth to a beautiful design piece.

Introducing a future legend of the furniture design world. The ‘MYTO’ cantilever chair was developed thanks to a mighty cooperation between designer, Konstantin Grcic, Italian furniture company, PLANK, and German chemical company, BASF (who provided the engineering plastic).

Developed over just 12 months, this magnificent chair was presented for the first time during the international plastic “K Fair” in Düsseldorf, Germany in 2007. But the ‘MYTO’ officially burst onto the market during the Salone Del Mobile, in Milan this April.

Made entirely from BASF’s ‘Ultradur® High Speed’ engineering plastic –– previously only used in the car industry – this superb design piece is available in eight different colors, exclusively in Australia from Insitu.
