Sling

This is our second project for the classic Swedish brand Fogia. After last year’s design of the Rise sofa we were asked to draw a lounge chair. It should have high comfort but still be smaller than a regular lounge chair, to meet the increasing need of good furniture for small spaces.

In the design process we focused on making a piece of furniture with a gentle look, where we tried to emphasize all the details without any overdesign.

The result is a distinct armchair, with visible contrasts of hard and soft from every angle. Its metal frame with a shape inspired by the classic sling, gives an impression of strength, against upholstery in soft tones and tactile textile. The Sling armchair is a classic study of modern Scandinavian design for the home or public space.
