The Reader’s Armchair is handcrafted from grained solid oak traversed by graceful linear decorative saw cuts suggesting fundamental geometry. This design began in part as a response to the designer’s own habit of a peculiar sitting position while reading and was further inspired by the architect Felix Augenfeld customized chair made for Sigmund Freud to accommodate the great doctor’s similarly eccentric habit.

Markowicz’s wooden reading chair is available in two versions: left and right, depending on the sitter’s tendency to lean on the left or right side. The left armchair has an armrest for the left hand, and a knee rest for the right leg, and it sets the whole body towards the left side (vice versa for the right version.)
