OASIS / Lounge chair


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

OASIS is the new interpretation of a wingback chair with organic lines. The combination of the material is innovative: the curved steel-tube is covered by knitted fabric. The knitting technology is similar to that of pullovers, the whole cover consists of one single piece. This technology with a cover in one piece and a tube in one piece has been patented. The shell of oasis is supported by a pendular mechanism that gently tilts backwards. The writing-pad rotates around the chair, so left- and right-handed persons can use it ergonomically. Design by Martin Ballendat as a part of his alternative office concept, CROSS OFFICE.
