The Y Chair by Tom Dixon is a “super serious stackable” and “bomb proof” office furniture.

But when you lay your eyes on the design, its geometric hourglass form and simple black and white color scheme looks more like a super sexy piece of minimalist furniture instead of a conference room staple.

Dixon was inspired two years ago when he did a massive redesign of the ad agency McCann Erickson's New York office, which showcases classic Dixon details like suspended orbs of light and sumptuous leather banquettes.

When it came to outfitting rooms with conference tables and stacking chairs, Dixon's team crafted their own sleek wooden tables, and created the Y chair. It took two years of tooling around to settle on an ergonomic shape with "space for the spine and a generous brace for the shoulder blades,” described in a press release.

The Y is made from flexible glass reinforced nylon so that the chair can take more wear and tear. It'll be available in February 2014 for about $450 each.
