We love everything about the Slow Chair and Day Bed by South African-based KOOP Design: the curves, angles and woven seat, all of which follow the same bent wood and light structure as the Ercol furniture from which they were inspired.  The seats are low and generously sized and designer Richard Stretton claims they are also a play on organic African forms such as the mokoros of the Okavango.  The chairs are made from a combination of ply and African hardwood and blend the natural and the mechanical. 

The Slow Chair and Day Bed come flat packed and can be easily stored away.  Stretton hopes they will appeal to younger people and with that in mind the chairs have been developed to function well at temporary events, as apartment living and outdoors as patio furniture.
