DIWANI CHAIR: A Sculptural Rocker by AE Superlab

Inspired by Arabic Diwani calligraphic script, Ahmed ElHusseiny of AE Superlab, designed a sculptural rocker with a flowing form. The DIWANI CHAIR’s linear “ribs” fit together to form an overall minimal design that was carefully crafted through precise engineering.


The curvy, sensuous silhouette is exaggerated by the dramatic lowness and depth of the seat, while the contoured shape gives the feeling that you’d want to lean back and lounge.


The chair was designed and fabricated in Brooklyn, New York with CNC routed sections of high-strength, cross-laminated plywood that is then carefully assembled and hand finished by local craftsmen.



The initial, limited run of the chair will be available in either white birch or a customizable multi-colored plywood.
