An innovative new chair designed by Tomoya Tabuchi for Viccarbe, NAGI is destined to become a classic modern icon for the company with its distinctive curved yet familiar form and engineered simplicity.
In the Japanese language the word NAGI means ‘calm water’ the concept refers to the gentle beauty of the water’s surface when it is undisturbed and serene.
The chair is available in two versions, fixed and rocking. Its exceptionally light and elegant structure is made from calibrated steel which is wrapped with fabric upholstery.A looped calibrated steel profile attached to the base lends the chair its stability is available in lacquered black, white, fluorescent orange and Altea dark blue options.
The NAGI chair features a generous high backrest that provides additional comfort for the head, the arms are integrated within the subtle curves of the structure with rounded edges that turn into legs forming a seamless and continuous wrap around surface. The simplicity of its silhouette is belied by the high tech engineering that has gone into providing a comfortable armchair using an injected foam base in order to avoid the requirement for cushions and unnecessary visual clutter.
The choices of fabric upholstery can be combined in different ways in order to facilitate customisation. The chair is ideal for reading or working given its surround structure which creates an island of calm whether it be static or through a gentle rocking motion.
