The basic idea is the creation of a continuous seat shell, using a textile braced between two spars. This is the construction of the Physix. In the ancestral series of the iconic chairs he stands as the last link. However, he is developing the typology decisively further.
Alberto Meda composes a combination of three elements to create a dynamic seater experience, using current production and materials engineering possibilities. Components of this are an elastic cover, the stabilizing mechanism and the flexible frame. These characteristics together form this congenial construction of the physix. The interplay of fixed and flexible elements re-interprets the possibilities of dynamic sitting.
The cover is available in 6 FleeceNet colours and 5 TrioKnit colours. The base can be selected in various aluminum versions. For use on hard or soft floors, the appropriate rollers are available.
