For thousands of years, the raddest craftspeople and explorers in the world sat on Trippy chairs. Now, these were thick, heavy, handcarved seats—the perfect statement piece for a mead hall or chieftain’s tent. From a chair like that, you could rule in style.

Cut to the present. Honestly, it’s bleak. The world’s saturated with copy+paste chairs made of polyester and plastic. But in a dim warehouse office, a few entrepreneurs take turns sitting in an antique x-shaped chair from Africa. And in that brush with the past, they catch a vision of the future.

“What if it was super light?” they asked. “And portable? Or printable?”

One prototype after another, they chase that vision—each chair more radical and comfortable than the next. In January of 2021, they launch an all-new brand with a flagship set of gorgeously handcrafted chairs. Six months later, they perfect a method for emblazoning chairs with any graphic imaginable. Today, they’re hard at work, reinventing additional products for a more radical age.
