Biomorphic seating unit

Jakob + MacFarlane, the Paris-based architects known for their Georges Restaurant at the top of the Centre Pompidou, have designed a form of seating called “It” which is inspired by organic structures. Made from hand-shaped and fire-lacquered resins with a high-gloss finish, It seating has a complex curvilinear form which is perforated with nearly spherical voids for lightness and rigidity.
