Mayze is a seating program that holds it arms out to visitors. Fresh, light and comfortable, Mayze creates a modern atmosphere where formalities are dropped and open conversation can start. Using both structural technical knitting and cushions to create a combination of dynamic and cosy sitting with a reduced impact on the environment. Inspired by the beauty of overlapping transparencies and the natural forms created through tensioned fabric was the main sculptural direction for Mayze. Born from an ambition to combine a new material and structure to maximum comfort with a minimum of materials. De-materializing the product reduces the impact on the environment.
