Technical Info

The load-bearing frame is constructed of poplar heartwood and elm with additional connecting elements in poplar plywood. Dap joints unite the various parts of the frame with securing cylindrical dowels. The carefully selected wood is naturally seasoned for at least three years on the company’s premises. The seat webbing consists of elastic polypropylene and natural latex belts in two sizes, each with its own precisely defined elasticity. Belts 9 cm wide are fixed parallel to each other and perpendicularly to the length of add_look at 20 percent elasticity; these are interlaced by 5 cm wide belts at 80 percent elasticity. The framework is upholstered with contoured sheets of resilient, CFC-free polyurethane foam (density between 30 and 35 kg/m3), covered with bonded plush and polyester wadding. The removable sections of the seat cushions are subdivided into three horizontal units. The central unit is fabricated in expanded polyurethane (with density 40 kg/m3). The two outside units are feather-filled, as are all of the removable rear cushions. The supports are curved chrome tubular steel, with feet shaped from plexiglass.
