Cappa

Cappa is one of the products originated during the PDP (Professional Design Programme, which I participate in Malaysia) for one of the most prominent companies in Malaysia, Dynamic. The briefing was designing an armchair exploiting the company’s high skill in foaming and upholstery. Taking inspiration from how the scallop “tongue” wraps around its body, I designed a very ample and wide backrest, hugging the user with a soft surface, making easy for the arms to rest in a natural position. The result is Cappa (Cappa is the venetian word for “sea shell”), a wide and comfortable armchair with a metal frame and upholstered cushions made with three different softness to enhance ergonomics.
