The extraordinary shape of the Hug Chair embodies the form the wrapping arms in a hug, but that’s not the only reason it is so desirable. When you look at it from one side, The Hug Chair also represents a circle. The circle is one of the most natural forms in nature. If you continue the structure of “The Hug” in your mind you will be able to see a spiral. This shape has inspired many artists and mathematicians throughout the ages. Spirals are everywhere in nature – from DNA structure to seashells. Gabriella Asztalos, the artist who created this modern furniture design, has also been inspired of this amazing, natural form.

When she designed the Hug Chair she managed to combine nature, togetherness, intimacy, feelings, and emotions into one magnificent work of art.
