Cowrie, Ash Veneered Bent Plywood Lounge Chair by Made in Ratio

$3,549.99per item


The contemporary Cowrie chair is a rock solid easy chair inspired by the concave lines of sea shells. The curvilinear forms are the result of an extensive research and innovation process that bridges the handmade with the digital. Sweeping lines are displayed in a gentle, single surface monocoque fold. The all-in-one structure is formed in bent plywood with either a natural or ebonised ash or walnut veneer sourced from FSC certified woods and workshops.

Customization Options

Available in Walnut, Ash and Ebonised Ash.
