The idea of the Dango Armchair came to Polish designer Agnieszka Kowal while helping a friend move house. A far cry from chunky, overstuffed armchairs, Dango is made of plotter cut plywood which renders the material more flexible. Inspired by Japanese culture, Kowal adapts their practise of low seating to her design.

What makes the seat stand out are the two salmon pink poufs that come with it. Reminiscent of the popular Japanese dumpling it was named after, the cushions are filled with sponge and fillers. When not serving as ottomans, they can be slotted into the chair’s seat and backrest for more a more comfortable position.
