To some, the Zest Chair may look beautifully simple, to others, it may look cute and quirky -- that's the magic behind this interesting seat. Not overly complicated in its design, the Zest Chair demonstrates that balance can easily be achieved between form and function.

Designed by Nancy Chu, the Zest Chair features a peeling effect that shows off a pop of color, making it very zesty indeed.
