Plover is a collection of chairs specifically designed for workshop and seminar events where the chairs can either be used individually or collectively to aid brainstorming and co-creation. The design of Plover encourages the freedom of different sitting postures. The protruding “head” is at one time the extended end of the back support of the regular seated user; at the other time it becomes a small worktop for the user sitting in reverse. There are 3 models under the Plover series.
