U Chair

Teo Neo

U chair is made of steel tubes and 1.5 mm thick steel sheets. The backrest supports are detached from the rear legs. Thanks to this particular detail, the backrest can tilt backwards few degrees, allowing a comfortable swing while seated. According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself. The species of designer finds itself in an environment where the only way to see your ideas realized is to make it yourself. teo neo is a furniture project by Matteo Venezian.
