The C1 Lounge Chair is part of a series of furniture whose formal language is developed from the hand drawing of a single line. Reminiscent of calligraphy, the intuitively-created form is an interplay between drawing and physical object, between concept and reality. The process of intuitive form-finding to create a functional object leads to a symbiosis of form and function.

In the realisation of the two-dimensional drawing, the design takes on a third dimension which, depending on your perspective, seems to convert back into two-dimensionality.

The frame is made of recycled steel and will be available in three powder-coated color combinations. To ensure both technical and aesthetic longevity, great importance has been placed on an easy exchangeability of the acrylic seat shells – made of 100%-recycled PMMA waste and also being available in various colour and material combinations. Due to the slight flexibility of the clamps that attach the backrest to the frame, the chair is adaptable to different body shapes in order to provide comfort.

Carefully thought-out design details and fine material finishes augment the sensuality of the form. Since the steel frame does not require any drill holes, it retains its sculptural appeal even without the seat shells.

With its subtle yet elegant appearance, C1 fits into different contexts with great ease: Like a sculpture, it enriches fashion boutiques, hotel lobbies or private living rooms.

The C1 Lounge Chair is the synthesis of a minimalist, timeless form and an adaptable seating system – designed for modern flexibility.
