Evo, by Nolen Niu

The EVO collection explores the use of shapes and negative spaces, which results in the comfort and functionality of the piece. “With the EVO collection, I explored the possibilities of creating three separate zones for seating which are the seat, lumbar, and backrest,” explains Nolen. The hexagonal like shape keeps the piece feeling light weight, while providing the optimal angels for each zone without compromising the shape and form factor of the design. The large 2-inch gap simplifies cleaning with the use of a narrow nozzle vacuum attachment and leaves other items in plan view and easily retrieved.
