Kitt is a strong industrial furniture design with compelling visual and narrative properties. Kitt has a rounded expression, with a backrest that is as large as the seat is charming. Kitt ships in a tiny box and is assembled almost without the use of tools. The seat and back are in stained ash veneer, the legs are solid wood, while the frame of the seat is made in sturdy polyamide that almost resembles wood and thus has a subtle visual appearance, unless you choose a contrasting colour to achieve a creative clash. Kitt is cool in principle, price and production.
