Renowned Austrian design trio EOOS and Carl Hansen & Son have collaborated to create the Embrace Chair, a reinterpretation of a classic dining chair can stand alone as a work of art.
Martin Bergmann from EOOS explains: “We sought to create a design that is at once precise and relaxed … to design a chair whose wooden structure is continuous, with legs that are not mere appendages to the upholstered upper part of the chair. So we devised a soft cushion in a shape that could be folded into three dimensions and thus function as a seat, back and armrests in one.”
While intended as a dining chair, the Embrace Chair’s elegant design works well in a variety of locales from waiting rooms to living rooms.
Carl Hansen & Son and EOOS are currently fine-tuning the final design of the Embrace Chair.
It will be available at Danish Design Store this autumn.
