This minimal + visually light seating collection is inspired by the gentle curves of the hillsides

We often underestimate the importance of a great chair! When in reality we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And one such design I recently came across is the Terra seating collection.

Designer: Sebastian Alberdi for Missana

Designed by Sebastian Alberdi for the Spanish furniture brand Missana, the Terra seating is a curvy yet gentle seating design that will add a burst of personality to any space it is placed into. The minimal yet sturdy furniture piece is inspired by the gentle curves of the hillsides, which is depicted in its intriguing form.

Missana says that the Terra chairs and sofas feature “a sinuous valley of backrests”. Alberdi designed the seats to mimic picturesque landscape sceneries. The gently curving structure of the chair is supported by slender iron legs, and a rather slim profile, which gives the impression that the chair is quite light and free-flowing. “I had two clear purposes – to create a compact design collection that at the same time looks visually very light,” said Alberdi.

The seating collection includes two- and three-seater sofas as well as a chair, armchair, and bar stool. The frame of the chair features a classic black color, while the cushioned seating is available in a variety of diverse fabric colors. You can pick upholstery in the color of your choice.
