Without using extravagant details or bizarre shapes, the Ukrainian designer Vasiliy Butenko created the HIPPO: a comfortable chair that sports a nice and modern line of design.

With a steel frame, a polyurethane interior and a real leather exterior, this furniture piece has a round and dynamic form that nicely supports the back. In place of the traditional four legs, this piece is supported by a padded and voluminous bottom that gives the impression to users of more comfort. The fun name of the chair, HIPPO, was inspired, according to the designer, by the famous chocolates Kinder Surprise.

Ideal for homes or public areas, The HIPPO by Vasiliy Butenko is available in variety of colors to beautifully blend in every space. Stats for Minimalist Round Chairs Trending: Older & Mild
