The lounge chair came about by combining inspiration from two iconic chairs of early modernism: the ‘Thonet Bentwood Armchair’ by Michael Thonet and the ‘Spanish Chair’ by Børge Mogensen.
The combination of these two classics resulted in something new – just as elegant as the Thonet and as comfortable as the Spanish Chair. The chair is not only a wonderful piece of design. It is also extremely comfortable and, moreover, provides you with a majestic posture. It is an extremely lightweight lounge chair and, thus, easy to move around in the home. The aniline leather supplied by the premium leather manufacturer, Sørensen, will age with time and add character to the product.
Afteroom are on mission to create products that will become more treasured as the years pass. “We want to create design you can grow old with,” explain designers Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei, adding: “Simplicity and honesty are at the heart our design philosophy.” Hailing from Taiwan, they were lured to Stockholm by an obsession with Scandinavian design. In 2013, they designed Menu’s first ever chair, the Afteroom Chair (one of our most popular products).
