In this occasion, they have developed NIM, a new chair for the Inclass Company. Since they were founded in 1990 the company have been focused on design furniture for public and private areas. All their product line stands out thanks to their elegance, atemporal design, and fluid shapes. They have a human a personal sense, where the user needs and his relation with the environment have the main role. Looking for ergonomy and comfort, optimizing to the maximum the product and making it more accessible.
Unifying craftsmen tradition, the actual fabrication methods and the added value of an author’s design is what really defines Inclass Brand. And following this way and working with Yonoh they created NIM chair.
NIM’s idea came up by questioning the ability to establish a dialogue with the habitat. Each shape was chosen wisely, highlighting its enveloping design, friendly and elegant. Starting with slight and human curves, those parts of the body which are in constant contact with the chair.
