The VIA57™ easy chair by Bjarke Ingels in collaboration with the design group KiBiSi, was designed for the VIA 57 WEST building in New York City.
Immerse in its comfortability, soft upholstery and its endless ways of styling - be it in a grand hall or an apartment living room.
The chair is composed of a steel frame embedded in molded soft polyeurothane foam. Two different densities create the soft yet firm comfort.
The base consists of 3 legs made of solid oak.
Bjarke Ingels in collaboration with Kibisi
Lars Holme Larsen, Bjarke Ingels and Jens Martin Skibsted had collaborated on and off for several years before founding KiBiSi in 2009. The powerful trio started up the idea-driven design company to fully exploit the synergy of their individual successful design companies and architectural firms: Kilo Design (Ki), BIG architects (Bi) and Skibsted Ideation (Si). Today, KiBiSi is considered among Scandinavia’s most influential design groups.
Driven by the good idea
KiBiSi’s founders have a common fondness of the good and rigorous idea. An eternal strive to deliver sincere, serious and clever products, which clearly communicate the original idea. The design trio often explores the potential of crossbreeding elements from different disciplines to create untraditional, functional and aesthetic solutions.
