After Miura, Myto and Monza, the latest addition to the Plank collection designed by Konstantin Grcic is Avus. Avus is a club chair which pays tribute to the characteristic qualities of this classic furniture type: great comfort, attention to detail, fine materials and refined elegance. However, the use of modern materials processed with cutting-edge technology from the automotive and sports industry makes Avus a radical reinterpretation of the lounge classic. Avus is a highly contemporary product in terms of its design and technology applied. The rigid base in ABS is produced as a twin-sheet moulded shell, reinforced with a polyurethane foam core. The stiffness of the base is contrasted by a flexible upper shell made of a single sheet of the same material. The leather upholstery is zipped into the upper shell in one piece using a technology common in the production of high end luggage. Avus is a compact and physically light piece of furniture with a high degree of comfort, made for the contract market (waiting areas in hotels, airports, offices) as well as private homes. The combination of plastic shells with leather upholstery generates an exciting diversity of surfaces and allows Avus to be produced in a wide spectrum of colour combinations, reaching from complete monochrome to strong contrasts. Application areas: Contract, Gastronomy, Living and Office.
