Swedish company Massproductions launched an upholstered chair called Crown, designed by Chris Martin, in Stockholm Furniture Fair 2011. Here is some information by the designer, “The Crown armchair and easy chair create a dignified and elegant sitting experience, regardless of the location in which they are placed. They have a light, open back design with fully upholstered side panels which give a sense of volume despite the chair’s low weight. The chairs are made from relatively flat parts, which when joined together give a strong form which is greater than their sum parts.
The backrest is perched on top of the armrests and seems to be unsupported. The connection is in fact very strong and this innovation adds to the visual playfulness of the chairs. The Crown armchair and easy chair are upholstered in a heavy duty woolen stretch textile, which allows us to keep seems to a minimum, further enhancing their beautiful forms.”
