Carl Hansen & Son has extended its Embrace Series with a lounge chair designed by EOOS. The softly upholstered Embrace Chair, which was presented last year, is being joined by the Embrace Lounge Chair - a relaxed, exceptionally comfortable addition that naturally supplements Carl Hansen & Søn's furniture collection. The company also launched a matching footstool.
"The fundamental concept behind the Embrace Lounge Chair is the same as the Embrace Chair's, but we have altered the proportions," commented Gernot Bohmann, EOOS. "The sitting position in the lounge chair is completely different, which has influenced all the angles and the entire geometry, and we have also played with the amount of filling in the cushions.
"The lounge chair enabled us to achieve a greater contrast between the soft upholstery and the simple wood frame. Greater volume, a softer filling and bolder proportions give the lounge chair a more enveloping feel. When you stand in front of the chair, you want to touch it, to sit in it, and to never leave it."
At once elegant and comfortable, the Embrace Lounge Chair was conceived for both private and public spaces. The chair frame is crafted from wood and visible from all angles. The curved back is formed from three pieces of wood connected by classic finger joints. Both the chair and the matching footrest are produced in solid oak or walnut in a range of finishes, with upholstery in many leather and fabric combinations and with black, white, brown, natural or blue edging.
