Evo is a redesign of one of Davis Furnitures most iconic chairs.

“In 2015 Danny Davis asked me if I would like to team up with Burkhard Vogtherr to redesign one of his most successful chairs as their 75th anniversary chair.”

In the early 80’s Burkhard had designed the motion chair. It was comfortable, innovative and looked great, celebrating its construction by displaying its structure and function with pride, Motion was a huge success for Davis.



The Design

The design of Evo had to be relevant today. 
With modern communication technology we find ourselves highly stimulated throughout the day. This stimulation creates a need for visually quieter furniture that works with us.

Evo conceals its mechanism and only communicates that which is necessary, in this case elegance and comfort.
The mechanism adapts to each individual automatically without creating distraction, adapting to each individual automatically.

“The design of the chair is like a static sculpture that comes alive with movement in use.”


EVO is available with an upholstered arm or loop aluminium arm, with or without cap and a high back or mid back depending on preference.
