The design concept is inspired by the design philosphy of Isamu Noguchi where “Everything is sculpture.” I set out to design a functional piece of art using natural flowing lines & an object that is gracefully balanced, hence the name Poise.
Poise is derived from Old French, pois, which means “weight, balance.” Poise has come to mean “grace and balance” because of the gracefulness of equally distributed weight. Think of the related word posture. In the physical sense of the word, someone who is poised should have good posture. In the emotional sense, poise refers to composure and self-confidence. The chair’s design embodies both the physical & emotional qualities of the word, poise.
