TEXT

The Thorus chair was born from the tension between an embryonic geometry, the egg, the ergonomic curves for the human body, which have much to do with the fetal position, and a toric surface topology. The thorus surface rotates around a void, which in this chair alludes to the early embryonic space.
The chair is constructed with steel tube bent by CNC machinery and then upholstered with high density foam.
