Created for Thonet by Munich based design studio Formstelle, the distinctive 808 lounge chair combines maximum comfort with numerous possibilities for individualisation.
The 808 lounge chair plays with the contrast between a protective shell and an inviting openness, creating a place of retreat and calm. Its memorable appearance represents a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic wing chair – the shape suggests an elegant cocoon that embraces the person sitting in the chair, communicating a feeling of security.
Another striking characteristic is the comfortable upholstery with its welcoming soft wave effect, available in various colours. This inner cushioned core establishes an intriguing contrast with the angularity of the outer shell. A clever mechanism allows users to individually adjust the position of the chair.
For added comfort, an optional neck pillow is available. It can be flexibly positioned thanks to an integrated counterweight, which ensures optimal head support. The pillow is available in numerous covers – from fabric to leather – and thus can either serve as a colourful contrasting accent piece or blend in harmoniously with the wrap-around seat shell.
An addition to the 808, the compact 809 lounge chair functions as the equally stylish and comfortable “little brother” of this popular piece, offering a place of retreat in smaller rooms or in groups, or in combination with the larger chair and the low side tables such as the 1808 and 1809. A footstool rounds off the range.
