Folding chair Numakulla
Numakulla in aboriginal mythology was a pair of gods, who created all life on earth. Numakulla is free spirit, who is enjoying the company of gods.

This parallelism corresponds to two chairs, each can be image slung on the wall in stowed position and a chair as such when unfolded.
The chair is made of solid beech. The back is veneered by eucalyptus, the front then by manually spliced impressive marquetry from Polar walnut and American walnut. Marquetry motif of concentric circles and the diverging rays is based on aboriginal art, which carries sacred spiritual knowledge. Chair edges are stained into the decor of eucalyptus.
