With the range 808, Munich based design studio Formstelle has created a lounge chair that combines maximum comfort with numerous possibilities for individualisation.‎ The new lounge chair 808 plays with the contrast between a protective shell and an inviting openness, creating a place of retreat and calm.‎ Its distinctive appearance is created through a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic wing chair – the shape suggests an elegant cocoon that embraces the person sitting in the chair and communicates a feeling of security.‎ Another striking characteristic is the comfortable upholstery with its welcoming soft wave effect.‎ This inner cushioned core establishes an intriguing contrast with the angularity of the outer shell.‎ A clever mechanism allows users to individually adjust the position of the chair, while a footstool enhances the range.‎
The swivel frame of the lounge chair 808 is available in a number of different versions (wood with bentwood elements, stainless steel, tubular steel chrome-plated or in various colours).‎ The mechanism hidden inside the chair enables the variable adjustment of multiple seat and backrest inclinations through to a relaxing fully reclined position.‎
An upholstery concept that Formstelle has exclusively developed for the lounge chair 808 completes this highly detailed and well-conceived design.‎ The designers have created a distinct fabric for the lounge chair 808 in collaboration with the German textile manufacture Rohi: “Soul” is available in thirteen colours and impresses with a high-quality new woollen yarn and a multidimensional honeycomb structure that lends depth to the fabric.‎ Customers can choose from six different colour worlds, each consisting of material options in leather, fabric and formed fleece, with matching decorative seams.‎ An optional writing panel, useful for writing as well as storage, is available with the 809 lounge chair.‎ A footstool rounds off the range.‎ For added comfort, an optional neck pillow is also available.‎ It can be flexibly positioned thanks to an integrated counterweight, which ensures optimal head support.‎ The pillow is available in numerous covers – from fabric to leather – and thus can either serve as a colourful contrasting accent piece or blend in harmoniously with the wrap-around seat shell of the comfortable lounge chair.‎
