Twins is designed for guests lingering in office or lounge areas. The parted shape of the furniture piece creates a surprising visual effect and inspires curiosity to experience how it feels when seated The angled metal legs support the visual puzzle, creating a contrast between the bulky body and the delicately worked legs. When people with different body weights sit down together in the seating arrangement, the individual seats shift slightly along the mid-section axis, thus balancing out potential imbalances in a subtle way. With its carefree, playful design, this unique piece of furniture creates a refreshing air amidst a fastpaced day. “The initial design ideas for Twins, which earned the renowned Red Dot Award, date back to 2008. It all began with the dream of Ece Yalım Studio and Ersa to create a guest chair that would enrich its space while not overwhelming the present architectural design. The first step toward realizing this dream was taken with a concept presentation to Ersa by a design team consisting of Ece Selamoğlu Yalım, Oğuz Yalım and Feride Toprak. Sketches, which began with two symmetrical and separate pieces, resulted in the first model of the product. During the 4-month product development process the opinions and preferences of not only the ''guests'' but also of interior architects were taken into consideration. Twins' character was targeted not to compete with the style of architecture to which it belongs but to contribute to visual integration and provide motion. Today, the preference of the Twins product designed as a guest chair for waiting and manager rooms proves that the design has achieved its goal. Twins forms a pleasant contrast with the straight texture of contemporary and plain spaces with its dynamic form and sharp angles. Offering a rich colour selection, Twins is favored for its pleasurable dynamism in multi-use wide reception spaces. When considered in terms of user experience, Twins’ seemingly divided form in contrast to the traditional offers a visual surprise. It invites experimentation while creating curiosity in how the pieces are held together. Those who respond to this impulse and experiment with Twins define it as ergonomic, comfortable and balanced. Twins with single and double models are manufactured only with felt cloth. 15 colour options and 4 footing choices permit personalization of the product according to preference. In addition to the ''Red Dot'' award given to products combining quality with superior and innovative design, Twins has received and the ''Good Design'' award in the office furniture branch in “Design Turkey 2010” and the IF Product design Award 2011.
