polygon chair | design numen/foruse
Polygon is an armchair whose armrests are based on the modernist typology of a seat of modest dimensions. It fulfills the functional parameters but does not usurp spaces that are susceptible to bulk and immobility. Each change in perspective transforms the triangles that define the orthogonal side view of the armchair, into hexagons and other complex polygons. The end result is a product which seems familiar, even a little old-fashioned, yet is simultaneously distinctly modern. The bent steel rod construction further accentuates Polygon’s duality.

Polygon armchair and coffee table were made as an homage to the modernist typology of a seat of modest dimensions which fulfills the functional parameters but doesn’t usurp space with its size. The end result is a product which seems familiar, even a little old fashioned, yet is simultaneously distinctly contemporary.
NUMEN/FORUSE IS A CROATIAN-AUSTRIAN DESIGN COLLECTIVE WORKING IN THE FIELDS OF SCENOGRAPHY, INDUSTRIAL AND SPATIAL DESIGN AND CONCEPTUAL ART. THE GROUP WAS FIRST FORMED IN 1998 AS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS.
Under the banner ForUse they designed for Cappellini, ClassiCon, Desalto, Interlubke, Magis, mdf Italia, Moroso and Zanotta. Numen/ForUse designs interiors and outdoor spaces in cooperation with architecture studios 3lhd (Croatia) and Imarea (Austria). In 2008 the collective turns its focus towards configuring objects and concepts, an activity resulting in more hybrid and experimental works such as the Numen-Light series, Tape Installation and Net. From 2004 onwards, they became intensely involved with scenography. Numen/ForUse are the only Croatian contemporary product designers whose works are regularly represented in global anthologies of contemporary design.
