Circa Double Seater

The Circa Double seater chair is a sculptural hanging chair made from the highest grade Baltic birch plywood with a natural Osmo oil finish and marine grade rope. The simple, geometric lines of its hanging form create a self-contained architectural space in both interior and exterior environments, a comfortable safe haven of peace and quiet.

We have installed many chairs and are happy to advise and work with your specifications, talk to us about your installation requirements including size, frames, finishes and suitability of location.

This chair is part of a collection of hanging chairs that includes the Circa Chair and Hive chair.

“The beauty of this shape is that it encourages you to sit on either side facing one another instead of facing forward.” -Nick Rawcliffe

The story behind the design

“Do you have a hanging chair for two?

My answer to this question was to make the orignal Circa chair design wider with a curve, shaping it like a kidney bean. This makes the base surface a contour creating a more comfortable seating position for two people. I don’t know any other chair that does that.
