Soft Limits is the consumer brand of American designer Ara Thorose.

It’s debut collection, Soft Cylinders, features chairs created in Thorose’s form language. The 7M Chair, 5M Chair, and 5+5M are part of ongoing series that play between sculpture and design.

The 5M Chair received the honor of “Editors’ Pick” by The Architect’s Newspaper in their 2019 Best of Products Awards.

“My work is about line. Each ‘soft cylinder’ is one line exploring movement. My cylinders have the circumference of a thigh. That sense of volume lends a sympathetic element to the work. It’s minimal and abstract, yet warm and playful.”
