PARADISE BIRD | High-back armchair By Wittmann
High-back fabric armchair
Paradise Bird is a collection of unusual pieces of furniture: it manifests an attitude to life, an exciting interplay of freedom and retreat, openness and reassurance. In balance between shape and essence, through a bold design that merges elegance and flexibility, Paradise Bird is rooted into the Viennese tradition of sophistication. The family composed of a lounge chair, a high back chair, a two-seater sofa and a stool transcribes the eclecticism of a research that aims to enhance the comfort. The special seating experience may be a surprise in view of the idiosyncratic shapes, but pocket springs and down filling deliver the kind of seating comfort associated with a genuine Wittmann. The seamless juxtaposition of diverse materials highlights their quality and achieves a light appearance while ensuring stability. As a detail that pays tribute to Josef Hoffmann’s design, a frame in black or brass metal with a vertical grid characterises the structure, serving as an embracing backrest or as the support for the stool. The welcoming roundness of the upholstery and the generous size of the seats makes Paradise Bird lounge family to be a versatile solution able to create a variety of combinations, always preserving a warm feeling of cosiness.
The Paradise Bird Highback Chair expands the possibilities offered by Wittmann and Luca Nichetto with a new typology of lounge chairs, a very special combination of elegance, lightness and eclecticism. By extending the length of the grid structure, key feature of the family of lounges to which it belongs, Paradise Bird Highback Chair acquires a backrest with a head cushion placed at the top, merging sophistication of the design with comfort. Despite the unusual vertical plane, the high back chair has the effect of a delicate sculpture thanks to the fine metal rods. The generous size of the swivel seat and the roundness of the upholstery maintain unchanged the warm and welcoming feeling of the entire lounge family.
