NyChair X 80 (available in 5 colors)
Designed in 1980 by Takeshi Nii, the iconic and award-winning Nychair X 80 is having a global re-launch and will make its North American re-launch debut at the Tortoise General Store. A riff on the classic director's chair but with a lower center of gravity for a comfortable and relaxing sit, the X80 features a beautiful, high-quality cotton canvas seat and beechwood armrests that fold up effortlessly into a stationary upright position. With a minimalist style and efficient portability with its lightweight and compact frame, you can easily move the chair from room to room or temporarily outside to enjoy many different sceneries and spaces. Made for indoor-use, we recommend using these chairs outside only for short periods of time to avoid sun-bleaching and damage. Be sure to also check out the long-time favorite, Nychair Ottoman and the Nychair X Rocking, for the complete Nychair experience!
