A comfortable user experience is at the heart of AXYL.
The AXYL collection is based around an inverted Y-frame – which gives each product both a high level of structural integrity and a unique design language. The triangular elements have been engineered to provide maximum strength with the most efficient use of materials. As a result, the collection has a distinctive, instantly recognisable silhouette that is made familiar through its reference to a traditional A-frame typology and subtle details inspired by Mid-Century design.
The chairs employ a unique recycled die-cast aluminum Y-frame silhouette topped with a softly geometric injection moulded shell, which is designed to embrace the sitter, with an optional cushion. Axyl chairs stack four-high to enable easy storage. The barstool shares the same characterful design language and is entirely symmetrical with double waterfall edges on the plastic seat. The chair shells and stool tops are available in a variety of low-impact materials, including recycled wood fibre and recycled nylon; and the recycled agglomerate “recon” foam used for the optional cushion is made from chipping down foam off-cuts and then forming them back together, offering an efficient way of re-using waste product from the furniture industry.
