WYTCHNIENIE [UNWIND]

The idea behind the footstool's design is to integrate functionality, innovation and minimalist design. It was crafted using recycled birch plywood and VIVE Texcellence textile composite – a high-tech material with the properties of both plastic and wood, produced from clothing waste. The composite is impact- and cold-resistant, does not absorb moisture, does not degrade when exposed to light and can be again recycled.

The best way to relax is by attaching the footrest to a couch or chair, or use it while lying on a mat. In times of chronic sitting or standing work, lifting the legs can significantly reduce muscle tension and fatigue, as well as improve blood circulation.

The ergonomic construction includes: four milled birch plywood pieces and a textile composite roller.
Easy assembly and disassembly make it ideal for even small interiors. The simple form stimulates creativity and allows everyone to answer individually how they wish to use it.
