The A11 armchair by Mikomax Smart Office is a modern, futuristic, and functional lounge chair, available in a closed version (A11) and an open version (A11.open). It allows you to create your own private space to escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. Thanks to its cylinder-like form, which encloses its users on almost all sides, it keeps you safe from the risk of direct contact with anyone else.
Privacy as a new luxuryThe A11 lounge chair gives the users the ability to effectively isolate themselves from their surroundings, to create their own space for work, informal video conferencing (or, simply, relaxation). Whether you are in the office or spend time elsewhere surrounded by others, privacy has a special value today. The development of technology negatively influences the availability of time just for yourself since we are constantly available online. The A11 chair will immediately bring back your sense of privacy.
The closed version of the A11 chair features a sliding front panel that covers the entire upper part of your body. When in the covered position, it also reduces the amount of light that reaches your eyes. Consequently, it allows for much deeper, faster recuperation when you want to relax. The A11 is also the only model on the market that allows for so-called power naps without the discomfort of being watched by others. The darkened interior is also perfect for creating a "mini cinema room" to watch a video on a tablet or smartphone.
The original, exclusive design is the creation of Przemysław "Mac" Stopa, the founder and the chief designer of Massive Design. The leitmotif of the design work, which determines the futuristic shape of the chair, was the anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. Today, spaceflights are no longer a vision of the future – they are the future, because "the future is happening now", so let's adapt our furniture and space as well. The design is enclosed in a cylindrical form that resembles a cocoon, with a comfortable seat inside that has visually separate elements (backrest, headrest, etc.). Chair users can also easily access the built-in USB port.
Privacy in an age of mobility
This lounge chair is intended not just for modern offices but also as a complementary element for hotel lobbies, airports, co-working spaces, reception areas, waiting rooms, conference spaces, and chill-out zones. The A11 is therefore a functional solution that fits the mobile nature of today's office and co-working spaces, providing an isolated zone which gives a sense of security.
Modern work modeThe A11 is a product that changes the previously accepted, archaic rules of work and encourages a modern, creative approach instead. It is a place in which you can take a nap during a break between projects, so you can resume work with fresh energy. With the A11 you can work in the middle of an airport or hotel lobby without worrying about anything or anyone around you. It is your individual space where you can feel safe and productive – a cylindrical form that surrounds you on almost every side. The A11 will become your favorite isolation, comfort, and calm-down center.
