Viva Chair by David Regestam for Suite NY

Dezeen Showroom: made by Swedish brand Gärsnäs and sold through Suite NY, the Viva chair by designer David Regestam combines the comforts of a lounge chair with a stylish aesthetic.

Regestam set out to achieve maximum comfort with minimal proportions when he designed the Viva chair, which has layered cushions on its seat and backrest.

“With Viva, I wanted to make a chair that focused on comfort and durability, packaged in a beautiful and timeless design,” said Regestam, who is a designer at Wingårdhs.

“The aim was not to produce yet another in a long line of new chairs, but instead to create a unique chair with a great lifespan that you will cherish for a long time to come.”

Viva is able to be used on its own as a reading chair or lounge chair or combined into a set around a dining or conference table.

Its frame is made of wood, while material made from recycled blankets is used in the seat.

In New York, the Viva chair is exclusively available at the Suite NY showroom, where there are two samples on the floor showcasing different upholstery options.
