The Peg Chair by Nendo Comfortably Provides a Compact Perch

The Peg Chair is a simple design with a fun quirk. Instead of hiding all of the construction behind upholstery, the wooden support of the backrest pierces through it for a detail that elevates the look immensely. Due to the careful placement of these wooden stakes, the Peg Chair is still very comfortable to rest in. In fact, it gives the backrest a nipped-in curve that provides a firmer lower back support.

Designed by Japanese studio Nendo for Italian furniture manufacturer Cappellini, the Peg Chair is inspired by ‘supermini’ cars like the Fiat 500 and smart cars that easily navigate winding European streets. Small and compact, it is especially perfect for tight spaces such as studio apartments.
