Dutch architects UNStudio will present angular white plastic chair at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan this week. Called New Amsterdam Chair, the design was originally created for the New Amsterdam Plein and Pavilion in New York by UNStudio and has now been developed for production with German firm Wilde + Spieth.

Originally conceived in connection to the New Amsterdam Plein and Pavilion in New York, the New Amsterdam Chair has since been further developed into a multi-purpose chair for use in a wide variety of different settings, both indoors and out. It can be placed at the dining table, in offices or in conference rooms, in the garden or on cafe terraces. The design of the stackable New Amsterdam Chair is based on a continuous, single line which expands into an uninterrupted surface, forming a shell-like cast for the human body.

“The human touch is expressed in the organization of the chair. The New Amsterdam Chair plays with the relationship between the stationary object and the more animate human form,” saying Ben van Berkel.
