NAPOLEON CL / innovative concrete chair

NAPOLEON CL
NAPOLEON CL

Napoleon CL – dynamic concrete furniture
We are presenting the first organically formed concrete lounge chair: Napoleon CL.
The passion for furniture design and a strong interest in concrete as a freely shapeable material formed our desire to create a new design language for concrete furniture.
Napoleon CL is inspired by the organic design formed by nature. The material thickness of only 5 mm and the weight of 30 kg make it a very delicate lounge chair.
By using a new innovative form of textile reinforced concrete, there are almost no limits to the design of our furniture which is extremely thin,surprisingly light, yet very stable.
