The hybrid office project shifts the focus from the desk to the in-between areas and Sedus responds to this need with a lounge armchair that combines the elegance of Nordic design, ergonomics and sustainability.
se: lounge is designed specifically for the so-called “third spaces” of the office, but it is also perfect at home.
The essential design reinterprets the lines of the classic bergère armchair in an original way, making it even more comfortable thanks to the expertise and production technologies featuring this German company.
All the research confirms that the challenge of the post-pandemic office is to be more and more beautiful, comfortable and welcoming in order to attract and keep the best talents.
The identity value of the office as a physical place is growing, but the desk no longer represents its fundamental element. The workstation – today in the advanced sit-stand versions – aimed at individual work activities and meeting tables of various types, are thus joined by new “third” areas to facilitate sharing and types of multifunctional furniture that can flexibly act as temporary workstation for concentration (a small writing tablet is enough to place the laptop) or as a lounge seat for waiting and relaxing (even more comfortable with a footrest pouf) and also as an armchair for friendly conversation or for informal meetings, to create a domestic and “chat” atmosphere.
Sedus responds to these new demands of the workplace, keeping faith with the values on which it has been based for 150 years – first of all sustainability – with an emphasis on “productive wellbeing” and once again bringing harmony, quality and design into the workplace.
The essential elegance of se: lounge has something particularly reassuring because, with the harmonious curves of its armrests and backrest with “ears”, it evokes familiar shapes and intimate domestic memories of the bergère of parents or grandparents. And precisely this sense of soothing physical wellbeing of serene hospitality is what we are looking for in a workplace dominated by technology and virtual calls.
The profile and height of the backrest with integrated armrests provide optimal support for the body and head. The shape of the backrest and the sound-absorbing properties of the material create a free space for reflection.
The seat shell is made of one-piece PET felt using shredded PET bottles and is 100% recyclable.
se: lounge is available in four different color combinations and is perfectly customizable; in addition to the seat shell, it is in fact possible to select the color of the armrest wings, the extra soft upholstery of the seat and back and the metal frame of the base.
se: lounge armchair can be equipped with a black freely swivelling writing tablet and with a pouf.
