Experience the impossible lightness and effortless support of Cynara, a task chair that integrates intuitive, responsive functionality with a clean-cut, refined aesthetic to complete any work setting.
Cynara was inspired in form and function by the yumi, a Japanese bow, which draws power from its arc form.
Similarly, Cynara draws on the strength and flexibility of its gently curved frame, a responsive structure that flexes and adapts, cradling the seat, to support movement and provide comfort.
Designer: Andreas Krob / Engineer: Joachim Brüske
Cynara is the result of a three-year partnership, between the Okamura team, Andreas Krob of Swiss design agency b4K and Joachim Brüske. A product and industrial designer, Krob is renowned for attention to detail, workmanship, and a holistic approach to design. Brüske’s meticulous engineering has ensured that the functionality of Cynara is simpler and more effective than ever. With their combined seating expertise, the pair have created a chair that offers superior lightness.
