Ta Armchair by TOOU


By Simone Viola

Certain objects retain their shape, almost unchanged, in time and design but can interpret and refine their archetype. It happens with everyday objects, used so often that their shape becomes obvious: a fork, a plate, a chair. The shape reflects its use and its aesthetics can never be compromised.

This has always been the guideline for our design: a flowing design triggered directly by natural ergonomics.


Ta, monosyllabic sound, as simple as the first word of a child, in Chinese, means both him or her, exactly the same, human identity regardless of gender, universal. A chair is, in fact, a human object, moulded around its use. It traces the profile of the body, eating or working at the table. It allows a resting position, halfway between a state of wakefulness and sleep, moments spent waiting or enjoying the company.


With Ta, we want to offer an elegantly simple answer to the demand for ergonomics and aesthetics.
Its design is inspired by the style of the 1950’s but with a touch of absolute contemporaneity, that of honest and democratic design, made possible by an advanced but relatively simple construction technique.
Available in a wide variety of solutions, its strength lies in this flexibility.


Three solid, flowing, and sinuous shells, also available in upholstered version, for completion with five curved metal tubular bases with wooden elements, characterized by essential design. The range of colors proposed reflects a contemporary taste, with the possibility to add seat

pads, making it possible to create numerous customized combinations.
