The form of the comfortable lounge chair, developed primarily for the interior of Bank of Slovenia’s central lobby, draws from Slovenian icon, mountain Triglav. The mighty chair overwhelms us with its duality: on one hand are its mighty, multifaceted back and armrests, upholstered in a rich grey textile; and on the other hand is a simple, underdesigned seat with minimalistic base, which – with its modesty – almost negates the massiveness of the upper part. The armchair, which measures 100 x 80 cm, can be used individually, but acts even better in a cluster, creating a dynamic vision, changeable with light conditions and movement through space; reminding us of a mountain range.
