Hug Chair is a spiral seating unit designed by Gabriella Asztalos. The designer has applied her experience as a classical ballet dancer to design the shape of the chair. Following is some description from the designer, “The “HUG CHAIR” is an exclusive furniture design which combines the original spiral shape and the values of a hug.
A unique uni-body circular structure connects both seats together allowing two people to sit face-to-face and thus creating an immediate intimate interaction. Through this physical connection, you feel socially and emotionally connected with the person sitting on the other side. The upper “half-pipe” which bends above the heads creates a highway of thoughts and a chain of emotions. In this way you are interconnected in the same circle and the focus is always on the other person, exactly what a hug is about.
The Hug Chair is a unique eye catching design with high comfort factor, contemporary features, emotional appearance, practicability, durability and sustainable quality. Its face-to-face interaction allows you to break away instantly from the crowd. The exceptional shape of the Hug Chair creates, even in large and crowded rooms or halls, an immediate, safe and intimate ambience for those who desire space for a private moment.
Foremost, the chair is a beautiful masterpiece. Its remarkable aesthetics make it a desired item. Consumers are not simply buying a chair. They are buying a statement where design and intimacy come together.”
