By Numen/ForUse

The basis of the system is the characteristic profile of a sofa which, defined by two triangular prisms, ensures maximum foam thickness on the rear of the seat and the backseat's lumbar area. The structural veneer moulding is bent around two axes and is upholstered together with the foam, resulting in a unified pulsating form. As a result of the triangulation, the solid oak legs thin towards the bottom, thus transforming the square cross-section of the top of the legs into their bases' triangle. The Oblique easy chair with metal construction of the legs emphasizes the specific profile and volume of the easy chair, thus losing the impression of massiveness that the easy chair has in the wooden version.
