Notes

Our Easy Armchair re-edition evolved over a couple of iterations. The original pieces we had come across had fully exposed canework knots at the back. Our initial prototypes were made with this design. Subsequently, we developed the more refined version with partially hidden canework knots.

The Easy Armchair was used in the General Hospital Campus, Punjab University Hostel and other public buildings. These chairs were placed in the balconies of rooms in the university student’s hostel. Variants of the Easy Armchair were also designed for private residences in Chandigarh and Ahmedabad.
