More about this product

In admiration for the slow, stately pace of the tortoise and its long life, the design studio Nadadora took on a brief from Sancal to come up with a timeless design, a chair.

The idea stems from a shell that we can withdraw into, immersing ourselves in a good novel or drifting off to sleep... Its formal simplicity is something of an expression of the studio’s calm personality, although the choice of textiles can add contrasting exuberance.

A tortoise carries its home with it, so Tortuga Armchair, as it is warm, cozy, soft and even rotates. A true slow-lounge-chair. The collection has been completed with rotating lounge chairs, poufs, and tables.

Different fabrics can be used on the back and seating area of chairs, headrests, and poufs. Using original fabrics by Febrik and Raf Simons for Kvadrat, Sancal has put together five color combination suggestions to make ordering easier:

  • Deep Blue
  • Emerald
  • Autumn
  • Polar
  • Mist
