About the design:
The BYK chair is one of Edmund Homa's most distinctive designs. Developed in 1966 as a single prototype, the chair never went into series production.
The special, organic backrest made of solid wood was classified as too complex and cost-intensive for centrally controlled mass production.
The chair was presented by POLITURA in 2020 and shortly afterwards it received the most important Polish design award MUST HAVE.
