KITE / Barber's chair

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Retro or avantgarde? KITE, a light hairdresser's chair which reveals a graceful, attractive curved contour. Its flowing shapes give an impression of stability. KITE's silhouette is at its most striking when the inner sides and the outer surfaces are upholstered in different colors and textures. The armrests support the forearms, guiding them along gently when the synchro mechanism tilts the back backwards while shifting the seat forwards so that the head comfortably comes to rest on the washbasin. The strong back frame acts as the center of rotation and allows the customer to be moved into position in an extremely comfortable, ergonomic way.
