Loungers pretending to be armchairs, camouflaged chairs which take over the space with their roguish appearance. The idea is simple: cover a metal frame with a padded overcoat and turn it into something else. A quite upstanding posture: the shape of the armrests is reminiscent of the lapels of a double-breasted jacket and this resemblance is confirmed with the central button-fastening. The upholstery becomes clothing, capable of transforming, without overdoing it, a bare, naked frame into an object in search of its own, innate identity.
Seat and back are flame-retardant polyurethane foam in varied densities on tubular steel frame with red powder coat finish; on transparent PVC glides. Talma cover is removable.
