The lounge chair 808 plays with the contrast between protective shell and openness. Its characteristic appearance is created through a consistent reinterpretation of the classic wing chair – the upper backrest is reminiscent of a protective collar. The shell embraces the person sitting in the chair and communicates a feeling of security. “It was our goal to design a piece of furniture that embraces the user, radiates inner calm and inspires,” says Formstelle. The 808 provides plenty of room for various seating positions.

La silla de salón 808 juega con el contraste entre cáscara protectora y apertura. Su apariencia característica se crea a través de una reinterpretación constante del clásico sillón orejero – la parte superior del respaldo es una reminiscencia de un collar protector. La cáscara abraza a la persona sentada en la silla y se comunica una sensación de seguridad. “Nuestro objetivo era diseñar un mueble que abraza al usuario, irradia calma interior e inspira”, dice Formstelle. El 808 ofrece un montón de espacio para diferentes posiciones de asiento.

The second striking characteristic is the comfortable upholstery that is reminiscent of waves. The soft inner core with the casual cushion look establishes a suspenseful contrast with the outer shell. Thonet’s upholstery department together with Formstelle tested various material combinations, aiming to guarantee maximum comfort. The result is a well-balanced mix of finely coordinated materials.

La segunda característica notable es la cómoda tapicería que es una reminiscencia de las olas. El núcleo interno blando con el estilo casual del cojín establece un contraste de suspenso con la cáscara externa. El departamento de tapicería de Thonet junto con Formstelle probó varias combinaciones de materiales, con el objetivo de garantizar el máximo confort. El resultado es una mezcla bien equilibrada de materiales finamente coordinados.

A colour and material concept that Formstelle exclusively developed for the lounge chair 808 completes the highly detailed and well-conceived design. The designers developed a distinct fabric for the lounge chair 808 in collaboration with the textile manufacture Rohi: “Soul” is available in thirteen colours and impresses with the use of high-quality new wool yarn and a multidimensional honeycomb-like structure that lends depth to the fabric. Customers can choose from six different colour worlds, each of them consisting of the material options leather, fabric and formed fleece and the matching ornamental seams.

For the development of the six colour worlds UNDER, ISLAND, AIR, TROPIC, URBAN and GREY the designers were inspired by places that do not have distinct boundaries such as underwater worlds, landscapes and urban spaces.
The swivel frame of the lounge chair 808 is available in three different versions (wood with bentwood elements, flat steel or tubular steel in various colours). The auto-return spring assures that the chair always returns to its start position. The mechanism with integrated springs hidden inside the chair enables the variable adjustment of various seat and backrest inclinations up to a relaxed reclined position. The programme is rounded off with a footstool.

 The sophisticated basic volume of the high-quality chair consists of a thermoplastic material produced in a rotational moulding process – an unusual technology in the furniture industry. The result is a hollow and hence lightweight volume that is already equipped with important features for the assembly and details. The plastic elements are covered with a layer of foam, which also forms the basis for the cushion elements. Due to its complex structure, the chair 808 offers a high level of ergonomic seating comfort.

El volumen básico y sofisticado de la silla de alta calidad, consiste en un material termoplástico producido en un proceso de moldeo rotacional – una tecnología inusual en la industria del mueble. El resultado es un volumen hueco y, por tanto, de peso ligero que ya está equipado con características importantes para el montaje y detalles. Los elementos de plástico están cubiertos con una capa de espuma, que también forma la base para los elementos de cojín. Debido a su compleja estructura, la silla 808 ofrece un alto nivel de comodidad y ergonomía.
