Lounge Chair with High Back
The 808 lounge chair by Thonet is characterised by maximum comfort, a timeless look and numerous ways to individually design it. The chair was designed in 2015 by the Munich-based design studio Formstelle, which created the unique fabric "Soul" especially for the 808 series together with the German fabric manufacturer Rohi.
The lounge chair is a reinterpretation of the classic wing back chair, providing a place of retreat and calm. The person sitting is enveloped in a wave-like padding and protective collar that can be individually adjusted thanks to the clever adjustment mechanism.
The seat of the chair consists of thermoplastic material, which is produced using a rotational moulding process. The result is a hollow and lighter body that is already equipped with important features for the assembly and details. The plastic parts are covered with a layer of foam, which in turn forms the basis for the cushion elements. The cover characterised by high quality pure new wool yarns was designed specially for the 808 armchair and is available in various colours. In addition, the seat can be upholstered with leather, fabric or Formfleece. The swivelling four-star base is available made from different varieties of wood, stainless steel or powder-coated tubular steel.
The matching 808 H stool is also available.
