The Swedish design trio Front has designed a lounge chair which combines comfort and design sophistication, resulting in an original renewal of the stylistic features of the brand. HIDEOUT has a square steam-bent solid beech structure and is enriched by a large and comfortable seat which is upholstered like the central part of the backrest. A wide embrace, ascending upwards with woven cane parts, defining the rounded profile of the armrests, which protrude over the seat. An enveloping and intimate space, recreated through the unique elegance of HIDEOUT.

The HIDEOUT lounge chair is an exciting combination of traditional technique with a modern, contemporary design concept. This piece of furniture holds to the company’s heritage in every single detail. The combination of the rattan weave and upholstery complete each other. The chair offers privacy, but through the rattan, you can still see your surroundings. Hideout is a holistically elaborated, yet beautiful, solution to interpreting the past through a modern, intelligent design approach.
