Two seemingly incompatible materials, plastic and wood, come together in a harmonious combination that is the Miss Trip Chair.

The backrest is grafted onto the seat by the simple application of pressure. The natural elasticity of the material offers a sensation of comfort making Miss Trip ideal for practically any setting in the home or office, as well as for restaurants and cafés.
