HINNY is an interactive seat that encourages children and adults to read together. The scalloped backrest demonstrates the beauty of natural wood grain through an ergonomic detail. It was designed with a view for the backrest and upholstered seat to be customised. The design explores a contrast between soft curves and angular shaping in a friendly, equine form. The shape of the chair invites users to choose a sitting position of their choice.
