Designed by Hee Welling, SMILE LOUNGE is a classic yet modern chair created to be quietly elegant.
Following an extensive study of ‘lounge’ activities, the chair is designed to support the postures of the modern workplace setting. The seat, back and front can be upholstered in different fabrics with a contrast stitching (creating the ‘smile’ line at the meeting of fabrics), allowing for endless opportunities to create a design to suit your chosen space supported by great comfort from a high-density PUR foam. The result is a playful look with organic curves contrasted by tight, classic lines. Smile is available in a wood or steel frame with upholstery in leather, lush velvet and a wide variety of fabrics.
