Harkening to the acetic vow taken by priests and nuns from the Highland of East Africa, the minimalist MeQuamya chair was inspired by the prayer and processional staff of the Ethiopian Coptic Church. Reserved and introspective, the deceivingly small yet comfortable chair invites you to meditate on the essentials of your life.
