Munich-based design studio Formstelle has created a lounge chair for Thonet that combines comfort with customization.
A hard outer shell supports a soft quilted seat upholstered in a specially commissioned fabric made in collaboration with German textile manufacture Rohi. Called ’Soul’, the textile is made using a high-quality new woolen yarn and a multidimensional honeycomb structure that lends the fabric depth.
Customers can choose from six different color palettes, each consisting of material options in leather, fabric and formed fleece, with matching decorative seams.
A clever mechanism allows users to adjust the position of the chair while an auto-return spring assures that the chair always comes back to its original position. The angle of backrest can also be adjusted from an upright to a fully reclined position.
The swivel frame of the lounge chair is available in wood with bentwood elements, or with flat steel or tubular steel in various colors.
