Nube Armchair by STUA
Updated: Jan 7, 2020
Nube armchair is a design by Jesus & Jon Gasca of STUA. The design of the Nube armchair comes from the combination between the flat orthodoxy of the contemporary spaces with the curves of the human body. While the outside lines of Nube armchair are made of flat parallel surfaces, the space where we can sit is curved and cosy, like a nest.
Instead of a solid block, the design of Nube armchair allows to see all the back part of the armchair. So the shape with all the curves where we are going to sit is visible. Looking at the armchair, before seating, we can already expect a big comfort from the armchair.
The upholstered armchair volume is then delimited by the sober straight lines of the outside, enriched by the grace of the inner curves. This effect is enhanced by the use of two colours in the upholstery of the armchair, one colour for the flat surfaces and the other colour for the curved surfaces.
Another detail of the NUBE armchair is that it has a square upper view. Different armchairs can be combined turning between them. So the armchairs can be linked making straight lines or angles.
