Kees about the Arch seat
Quality seating comfort comes first when creating a seating product. With the Arch series, I feel that we’ve accomplished a fine balance between support and cushioning.
All of this without using divided pillow elements. The Arch is crafted into one singular piece. We’ve padded the entire outer surface so it looks completely smooth and soft. This has a certain attraction that makes you want to try it out, touch and sit on it.
It felt almost mandatory to make the Arch in one piece, it absolutely matched my design philosophy. In my work I always aim for tranquility. Every shape and elements must work together holistically. No matter how brilliant the concept, in the end it will still be used and appraised as being a seat. This one sits well, has a striking presence, and looks unlike any other. My ultimate goal as a designer.
