Concept

With the range 808, Munich based design studio Formstelle has created a lounge chair that combines maximum comfort with numerous possibilities for individualisation. The new lounge chair 808 plays with the contrast between a protective shell and an inviting openness, creating a place of retreat and calm. Its distinctive appearance is created through a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic wing chair – the shape suggests an elegant cocoon that embraces the person sitting in the chair and communicates a feeling of security. Another striking characteristic is the comfortable upholstery with its welcoming soft wave effect. This inner cushioned core establishes an intriguing contrast with the angularity of the outer shell. A clever mechanism allows users to individually adjust the position of the chair, while a footstool enhances the range. The swivel frame of the lounge chair 808 is available in a number of different versions (wood with bentwood elements, stainless steel, tubular steel chrome-plated or in various colours). The mechanism hidden inside the chair enables the variable adjustment of multiple seat and backrest inclinations through to a relaxing fully reclined position.
