4ME

Nowy Styl Selection

4ME

Ergonomics and comfort – obviously they were inspirations for Martin Ballendat while designing the 4ME line. The armchair is a perfect example of how top-grade design can be combined with functionality.

The unique backrest design is one of the most interesting and fascinating elements of the 4ME product range. Besides the design itself takes inspiration from the branches of a tree, it also provides the ulitmate back support.
