Kayo

Designed by Jonathan Prestwich

Kayo is a reinterpretation of the classic bent plywood chair. It explores the potential of this time-tested material while defining its own unique aesthetic. Through a marriage of soft curves and strong geometry, Kayo’s striking form is comprised of a sculptural bent plywood shell supported by a distinctly architectural base.
