SOMA Chair / Chair

SOMA Chair
SOMA Chair

The Chair consists of several elements. The seating is filigree and defined as a closed unit. Limited through the stainless steel frame and shaped with vertical elements of a cantilever chair, the SOMA Chair generates a flexible and body adapting seat. The tubular frame borders the chair and focusses the view on the stretched and shaped fabric. Attached with zippers, many opportunities for individualization are given.

The casted aluminum stand adopts the planar look of the stretched fabric in its flattened tails. A cylinder made of the same material provides the transition to the frame.
