Polar Armchair

Polar is inspired by the shear forms of the ice caps in the arctic seas, thus giving life to an extremely versatile seating system. The seats and backrests, characterized by their full and sheared forms can be coupled together in a variety of ways, creating numerous seating layouts or options. The system is completed by a rather beautiful armchair and an original accessory which can be used as a seat or side table.
