Contemporary Lounge Chair, UME, Japanese-Style
This contemporary lounge chair is a marriage of seeming simplicity and time-honored complexity. It’s about perception.
Following the Japanese notion of wabi-sabi, the acceptance of imperfection, the Ume explores ideas of geometry and asymmetry. The irregular running outline of the chair, for instance, traces the edge of the artisan fabric. Folded on the backrest, the fabric fault-line showcases the simplicity of both the textile and the approach to the craftsmanship. The asymmetrical shape creates an illusion. The edge of the solid structure turns into smooth angles. To perceive what is inside is to follow the flow and break through the illusion of distorted reality. The Ume series includes a contemporary lounge chair and a sofa.
The chair is fully customizable. You can choose different fabrics from the Kvadrat collection. Also compare the additional pictures with different fabrics in this listing. You also have the possibility to use a Maharam fabric with the Ume chair. Please contact us for any questions.
