The expressive power of LaCarmen’s unconventional look is evident from its unusual “collar” which can also be positioned vertically by means of innovative, self-supporting material. The concept underlying the design is that of a dual-purpose chair. With its collar up it is a snug, enveloping nest; with the collar down it has an informal look ideal for convivial settings. Beech plywood frame covered with polyurethane foam. Shaped steel back covered with polyurethane foam. Resin-treated headrest and detachable zipped collar. Fully removable covers.
