Modern Dining Chair
LumiSource is a leading full-service supplier in the home furnishings industry, providing stylish and affordable furniture. I was lucky to have an opportunity to work with their design team to develop a modern chair for young adults.
Kota is designed to be fit in a small living area and can be separated into multiple small parts for a smaller packaging size. It is a combination of Scandinavian simplicity and ergonomic design, creating a subtle piece of furniture that can give users comfort.
