The chair in the collection – named Satellite – was designed to ensure users have an active sitting posture and features a handle cutout in the seat.

"The Abhito family enables the flow of movement and freedom from the constraints of settled, sedentary living," said Ca'lyah.

When designing the collection, Pakhalé was informed by his travels to the Chapada dos Veadeiros national park in Brazil and artisans working in the forest.

"What I liked was the uncomplicated manner in which we could shape the solid wood together with the young artisan," the designer said.

Five per cent of Abhito sales revenue will be used to support the next generation of artisans in underserved communities around the world, according to Ca'lyah.
