The MYTO Chair by Konstantin Grcic has recently been announced as the winner in the home furnishings of the Design Museum’s Brit Insurance Design Awards 2009. So it is obviously a new design, but it is not without its retro influences.
MYTO is a stackable chair, made from a single piece of plastic. It is a cantilever chair, which means it has no back legs to support its weight. Few designers have attempted to make these difficult chairs, but Grcic has now joined the ranks of Marcel Breuer and Verner Panton.
MYTO costs just over £185 in a huge array of colours including aubergine (pictured) which gives it a particularly Seventies look. Buy online from Made in Design.
