01 product description
Armchair. Frame in solid oak or walnut, or in metal. Seat in monochrome or two-tone plastic. Alternative upholstery in fabric or leather with polyurethane padding. Felt or plastic gliders, replaceable.
With their Sedan chair, Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu demonstrate how varying impressions can be created simply by changing the material or the colour of individual elements in a design. The chair’s seat and frame are conceived as visually distinct, contrasting forms: the seat appears to be suspended in the wood or metal frame like a sedan chair, giving the design its name. Although offering the ultimate in comfort, the armchair is not a ponderous, immobile object, but rather a lightweight, flexibly arrangeable piece of furniture. The seat comes in monochrome and two-tone versions, with or without padding. In conjunction with the frame in wood or powder-coated steel tubing, a wide variety of colour and material combinations are possible, to either harmonise with a given interior or form a deliberate contrasting accent. The designers have thus conceived the perfect chair for private use and public areas such as lounges, waiting rooms, reception aereas – something they had long sought for the interiors of their projects – providing distinctive, comfortable and yet mobile and elegant seating.
