The splayed legs and curved back of the Ray Chair by Russian designer Lera Moiseeva are inspired by a tree reaching towards the the light, while burrowing its roots deep into the ground and is a result of Moiseeva's attempt to interpret nature in objects.

The idea for the Ray chair was developed by the designer after she worked on an interactive outdoor light installation which had a number of rays converging on a point.  These converging rays became the inspiration for the chair's support structure, and gave the piece its name.  The five legs of the chair take the place of its roots and support the seat and a curved back with minimal lines.  

The chair is crafted from tubular steel, a material chosen to enable its dual use indoors as well as out.
