STACK by Skirvo:

“The concept behind the Stack easy chair comes from the idea of having cushions in constant motion that look like they have been stacked randomly on top of each other. Placing multicoloured polyurethane upholstered cushions on a molded plywood structure creates the perception of depth and playfulness. Two tubular steel rods add additional aesthetic detail as well as structural support for the ash wood legs.”
