"Cyngus" is a statement-furniture. To show the beauty and simplicity of wood bending, Cyngus is made in one piece.
The shape of "Cyngus" is inspired by the dynamic postures of swans. The organic shape of Cyngus is not only an illustration of nature but also intentionally encourages different sitting postures. The cushion shape conforms with the exterior contour, creating a unique balance between soft and hard. Even the empty space is not wasted but designed to be a secret box under the cushion.
Cyngus is a design that starts with aesthetic pleasure and ends in ergonomic success.
