The concept was inspired by the design philosophy of Isamu Noguchi where "Everything is sculpture." I set out to design a functional piece of art using natural flowing lines & an object that is gracefully balanced, hence the name Poise.
The word ‘poise’ is derived from Old French, pois, which means "weight or balance" but over the years has changed in meaning to "grace and balance".
Think of the related word posture. In the physical sense of the word, someone who is poised should have good posture. In the emotional sense, poise refers to composure and self-confidence. The chair's design embodies both the physical & emotional qualities of the word, poise.
