The Limbo Chair Provides Both Privacy and Openness

The Limbo Chair takes on the shape of a leaf. Its organic design is completely refreshing -- and not just because of its nature-inspired roots. Like a typical pod chair, it boasts a high backrest that provides the sitter with some privacy if desired; unlike a typical pod chair, this 'back screen' can be folded down much like the collar of a shirt for a more open aesthetic. Whether up or down, the Limbo Chair is comfortable to sit in and chic to look at.

Designed by Portuguese furniture design company Induflex, the Limbo Chair will be presented at Salone 2012 in Milan. Available in two shades of green, the Limbo Chair has an overall minimalist vibe in spite of its leafy design. The white base simplifies the look.
