808 The Lounge-Chair 808 plays with the contrast between sheltering shell and openness. It gets the characteristic looks through a consequent reinterpretation of the classic wing chair, which the upper back part reminding of a protective collar. The shell surrounds the seated person and conveys the feeling of comfort. ‘It was our goal to design a piece of furniture that wraps its arms around us, gives the feeling of inner peace and still inspires us,’ says Formstelle. The 808 offers a lot of space for different body positions. The second striking feature is the cozy, wave-like upholstering. The soft interior with the loose cushion look runs contrary to the outer shell. In order to provide maximum comfort when sitting, the upholstery department of Thonet and Formstelle tested different combinations of materials. The result is a balanced combination of compatible materials. Manufacturer: THONET
