Bridge Factory worked with 9to5 Seating to design an aesthetic driven family of seating. The Cydia family of seating has received much industry attention and has helped to elevate 9to5’s status as a design forward player in the mid-level contract market. Including a highback task chair, low back task chair, lounger and accompanying side chairs, the Cydia family offers a holistic solution for the office.
The Bridge factory designers took inspiration from the lightness of a butterfly wing for the Cydia’s airy frame. Building on this inspiration, Bridge Factory also defined the branding for the Cydia family. Cydia itself means “butterfly” in greek and the icon is a direct translation of the frames inspiration.
In it’s launch year, the Cydia chair won the inaugural InteriorDesign Hip award. The Cydia was selected under the Budget Minded Category, a product or collection of exceptional value. “Inspired by the shape of a butterfly wing, Cydia combines elegant design with progressive manufacturing technology to provide the best of form and function.”
