Der Diskurs der Dinge

Crash is a new interpretation of upholstered furniture that revisits the common systems of sofa and armchair construction. Grcic has separated the supportive frame from the soft upholstered upper and designed these as separate elements. Crash therefore co
nsists of a tubular steel chair frame and a loose foam upholstered cover. This two-inch thick layer of foam determines the formal language of the chair and is moulded to fit the metal frame but yet remains independent of it. Characteristics for Crash incl
ude its soft and voluminous curves. Crash is available in various cover materials and is suitable for both residential and contract applications.
