The Sunhan Kwan Coffee Chair Spills Away from Symmetry

You’ll most likely want more than one serving of the Sunhan Kwan Coffee Chair. Its asymmetrical design and familiar shape makes it stand out from the rest. The chair looks just like a cup sitting on a saucer. Its side handle provides an added function as a place to hang your jacket or purse.

The Korean designer’s recreation of this simple silhouette conjures up images of a steaming and comforting mug of your favorite warm drink. I can easily imagine these seats in a quaint café or restaurant. The Sunhan Kwan Coffee Chair successfully combines functional and decorative design.
