The Nychair X Shikiri lounge chair is a Japanese design classic that combines a foldable metal frame, a cotton fabric seat and wooden armrests, resulting in an effortlessly light and airy aesthetic. Named and inspired by Japanese partitions and folding screens, the Nychair X Shikiri lounge chair is adorned with a geometric pattern by Rika Kawato. This minimalist lounge chair features a low frame that allows for a relaxed lounging position and a high, curving backrest that provides support to the neck. The durable sailcloth moulds to the contours of the sitter, and if needed, the entire seat fabric can be cleaned or replaced. With its sleek yet incredibly comfortable design, the Nychair X Shikiri lounge chair is equally suited for watching TV and unwinding in the living room or taking a well-deserved break in the office, and its foldable structure enables effortless storage and transportation.
Designed by Takeshi Nii and first introduced in 1970, the Nychair X has captivated Japanese design enthusiasts for over half a century. Drawing inspiration from the Japanese way of life, the chair's timeless appeal and meticulous craftsmanship have earned praise from around the world, earning the Nychair X prestigious awards such as the Good Design Award and the Long Life Design Award. To this day, the Nychair X series continues to be manufactured in carefully selected production facilities in Japan.
