mike & maaike‘s windowseat chair for HAWORTH is a comfortable refuge

the chair is conceived as a comfortable refuge from the hustle and bustle of lobbies, or busy home environments

 

 

 

suitable for both public and private spaces, the ‘windowseat lounge chair’ by mike simonian and maaike evers of san francisco-based studio mike & maaike for HAWORTH is conceived as a comfortable refuge for both commercial and private use — from the hustle and bustle of hotel lobbies, airport lounge areas or busy home environments. by taking constructive elements (walls and ceiling) and applying them to a chair, the duo explores the idea of sub-architectural space, creating a room-within-a-room, complete with its own unique perspective. as office and workplaces shift towards a more open plan, it is important to have a place to escape, to think, to make a call, or relax. while sitting in the ‘windowseat’, the ambient noise is muffled. produced in both canopy and open versions, with or without ottoman, the lounge chair is fully upholstered over a foam-padded rigid molded frame, and swivels on a steel base.
