Product description

The furnishing of executive offices operates according to its own set of rules. Functional considerations are often secondary to the need for a stately and dignified appearance. Ergonomic and functional quality seems to assume less importance than formal clarity. As a result, armchairs for the executive office can often be less technically advanced than other office chairs.

Skape makes compromises between elegance and comfort a thing of the past. Whether as an executive chair, visitor chair or conference chair: Skape presents a family of executive chairs that can be employed individually or in combination to open up a wide variety of applications in the executive office environment.

Skape unites the comfort of an armchair with the functions of a high-level office swivel chair. For Antonio Citterio, a designer perpetually in search of contemporary expressions of classic form, the three-dimensional shape of the chair results in large measure from the cut of the leather. The decorative seams give emphasis to special details. As with the cut of a suit, they help structure the spatial effect of the surfaces.

Skape combines extraordinary seating comfort with a cohesive form. Together with the backrest, the armrests form a shell that envelops the sitter. Skape is available in either a medium-high or high back and with the choice of a 5-star base on castors or 4-star base on gliders. Designed with restraint and both elegant and distinguished, Skape compliments any executive office environment. In combination with the ACE office programme that was also developed by Antonio Citterio, the high-quality look of Skape makes an especially striking addition.
