Sling is a simple and elegant chair which holds a surprise. The backrest is actually a flexible silicone tube which conforms to the body, giving support to the appropriate area of the back as it naturally adjusts to each individual body type. Exquisitely crafted from solid birch, the tubing slips on to extensions protruding from the legs using only friction allowing for many variations by way of color and texture of the tubing. Once weight is applied, however, the tube grips the housing and will hold fast until tension is relieved.
