Sequoia by Magis has a clear recognizable, unified graphical outline – it reminds of a calligraphical character. The foot rest has the shape of a foot plate. This gives a certain freedom of movement: it’s like we’ve lifted a segment of the floor.
To Magis, the similarity in shape between the seat and foot rest is an important feature as it makes more meaning of the branch like division of the stem. The designers looked into various material technologies before they landed on a construction that is inspired by how bicycle frames are put together.
