Michael Young's 'Roxanne' chair is a piece of disco decor inspired by the designer's love of all things 70s.

Ergonomics meets style with this sculptural chair, which was inspired by the radical designs of the disco era. Like all of Young's designs, technology plays a huge role in the chair's conception as it was created with the aid of an innovative computer program that allowed Young to develop the most comfortable form. The chair was made from polyurethane and then upholstered with cloth, providing the designer with the opportunity to create limitless color options. The defining characteristic of the armchair is the groove that runs along the whole perimeter.

The chair was designed for public or private spaces, inviting people to slip into disco nostalgia while relaxing on a cutting-edge design.
