With 808 range, the design agency Munich Formstelle designed lounge chair that combines maximum comfort to many custom configurations.

The lounge chair 808 plays with the contrast between the protective nature of its hull and openness. Its charm lies in the characteristic modern reinterpretation and uncompromising "wing chair" classic. The top of the backrest recalls a protective collar. The shell embraces the user, giving it a sense of security. The 808 leaves the body the freedom to vary the positions.

The second striking feature of this chair is its comfortable upholstery that suggests the movement of waves. The cozy interior with its soft cushions contrast strikingly with the outer shell. In order to get maximum comfort in terms of upholstery, upholsterers Thonet tested different concepts of materials in cooperation with the agency Formstelle. The result is a successful blend of perfectly matched materials.
