Red Dot
The design of the Soma armchair, which consists of several different elements, makes it look particularly airy. The closed construction of the seating area invites users to take a seat. Framed by a stainless steel structure and based on two vertical spring elements, it flexibly moulds itself to the body. The fabric is attached with an ingenious detail – zippers. Frame and cover flow together in the base. With its shallow tapering ends, the aluminium pedestal picks up on the planar aesthetics of the cover and provides a visual link to the ground surface.

Statement by the jury

»The sophisticated design concept and the fascinating interplay of steel and fabric cover give the Soma armchair its airy appeal and flexibility.«
