At the beginning, there was a very simple chair – without armrests, but with an ingenious idea. Why not take a modern minimalist form, but combine it with extra-soft upholstery? The result was a compact, almost delicate chair that is far more comfortable than its clear, pure lines might suggest at first sight: Leya. Rewarded with astonishing success, the designers have since successively applied the same concept to various other types of seating - the Leya family now consists of more than twenty variants, from models with armrests through to lounge chairs and bar stools and the Leya wingback couch with its lavish Chesterfield upholstery.
Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss design is a fusion of contrasts. Leya is a perfectlyformed chair featuring an elegant, firmly upholstered outer shell on a delicate wire frame or on a solid wooden frame. With its congenial mix of material and colour, Leya has all the makings of a unique designer piece. To sit down in the chair is to indulge the senses further still. The inner padding accommodates your body much like a fluffy pillow and, in doing so, reveals Leya’s soft core to the chair user.
