Designer Convair

The Convair chair concept was created to bring out two main aspects; the infinity sense given by circles, and rounded progressive lines with a flow that never ends. The wooden rings of Convair fulfill this connotation evoking infinity and nature as a part of its identity. Convair was launched in 1973, and received good acceptance for its ground breaking design and style. It is a unique design product, making it a one off a kind piece of furniture. Convair was sold on five continents for a decade, and is now brought back to the market.

Convair was inspired by the observation of the multiple circles contained in a paper roll. These lines emerge from nature like the veins in the trunk of the trees.
