Neil is an advanced furniture which bridges work and leisure. By scaling the armrest and the seat, a common chair is transformed into a multilayered seating furniture, that combines qualities of both a chair and a table.
Therefore it fits the needs we evolved these days through the daily use of our devices. The prominent armrest offers the users a place for their laptop, a magazine, a cup of coffee or can simply be used as a rest. The extension of the seat also creates a new space beneath the armrest which offers an additional storage place. When turned, Neil alters its appearance through the interplay of bold surfaces and slim edges and there-by inviting its user to discover different ways of interacting.
