the german designers julia läufer and marcus keichel have created the easychair layer in cooperation with the swedish brand OFFECCT. layer is a poetic piece of furniture: several padded layers are curved and stacked over each other to form a seating object. with their rounded contours, the layers suggest the petals of a flower. the padded layers of the chair form a modular structure which lends itself very well to the building of a product family. the first layer on its own forms a stool. by adding a second layer, a “classic” easy chair is created, and an additional third layer makes an easy chair with a high backrest. in the version with three layers, the easy chair creates a self-contained and intimate for the sitter. the single layers comprise different types of fabric, and can be just one colour or multi-hued. there are ample possibilities for variations on this chair by using different fabric and colour combinations. this, combined with superior seating comfort, allows for a wide range of uses in the contract and home furniture fields.
