The new informal
by Fabian Peters | 11/1/2018
Will we still work at desks in future? That was one of the many questions asked at Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. We review the trade fair.
The Jay Lounge armchair is a privileged realm to dedicate purely to ourselves. Reserved for highly personal moments of meditation, relaxation and reading. A new take on the archetypal bergère that instantly becomes a contemporary icon. A new classic, completely atypical, with a strong emphasis on hedonism. The seat is modelled around the body. The geometries are organic yet taut and sculpted. The backrest and seat are independent of each other. Jean-Marie Massaud proceeds by subtraction, lightening the volumes and instilling movement into the composition. The armrests jut out jauntily, as if carved from the material. The ergonomics of the seat are primarily visual and are confirmed by the absolute comfort of the constructions and volumes. Thanks to the advanced processing techniques, the padding is perfectly aligned with the structure, emphasising the clean forms and offering enveloping and comfortable surfaces.
In its modern reinterpretation of the classic bergère, Jay Lounge avoids all forms of rigidity and moves in space. The specially designed die-cast base permits 360° rotation with automatic return to the starting position.
Designed for top ergonomic performance, Jay Lounge is intended for the home but is also perfectly suitable for public and work spaces.
The seat structure is in moulded rigid polyurethane reinforced with metal inserts. The padding is in moulded polyurethane foam and polyester wadding.
The 4-spoke swivel base is made from aluminium and is available in the blasted-burnished and polished finishes. Upholstery in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, Nest, Soul or Century leather, with refined stitching decorating the surface. The natural complement for the comfort of the armchair is the footrest which, with its equally clean and sculpted design, comes in the same materials.
