The wooden armchair with its warm minimalism continues the factual language of the horgenglarus collection into the 21st century. The bold sweeps of the backrest and rear legs give distinction to its geometry. Lounge's end-to-end design line offers a large variety of functions. The seat's comfort level varies from cushion to very comfortable belt upholstery.
Thanks to a variety of seat widths, depths, and heights as well as materials, the lounge is suited for a wide range of purposes and architectural styles. A staff canteen needs a different type of armchair than a café, bistro, or fine-dining restaurant. A council chamber or boardroom makes other demands than a hotel room or a private dining room. Larger hotels, restaurants, or administrative offices often combine more than one usage type in one building.
Lounge has character and identity. The warm and natural appeal of its wood makes Lounge a beautiful contrast to modern corporate architecture. In traditional buildings, its wood links to the building's history whereas its streamlined shape references the present. Lounge embodies the core competency of horgenglarus' unique wood-bending techniques and impresses with its inherent solidity.
In 2008, lounge was showcased on the Swiss Designers’ Saturday with an installation made from rustling leaves. Lounge is one of the last designs by Hannes Wettstein.
