Elegant simplicity

When comfort and aesthetics go hand in hand
    Edit Link

Simple in form yet filled with delightful details, the Plico chair is a rare example of great design that neither compromises on comfort nor aesthetics. Imagined by the Danish designer duo Fabricius Kastholm, masters at creating honest design that beautifully highlights what others often seek to hide, the foldable lounge chair takes up as little space as possible when not in use, while offering supreme sitting comfort by virtue of its soft upholstery and adjustable backrest.

Taking its name from the Latin word ‘to fold,’ the versatile  design appears simple at first glance. Closer examination reveals an extremely detailed design: the solid oak frame is shaped for stability. Saddle leather armrests attached to the curved rear legs results in a characteristic expression. Visible brass fittings add a sense of character, and the stitched linen canvas back, seat rest and cushions give the chair an added degree of comfort. Available in low and high back versions, the latter has a leather-trimmed neck cushion for extra support.

When designing the Plico Chair, Danish design duo Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm sought to create a chair that takes up as little space as possible when not in use while not compromising on comfort. Looking to highlight what other designers often seek to hide, they created a deceptively simple design with visible joints, beautiful brass fittings and accomplished craftsmanship.

Available in a high and low back version, the solid oak frame and curved rear legs are shaped for stability. The back and seat, fitted with corresponding cushions, are upholstered in stitched linen canvas to provide an elegant expression and supreme sitting comfort. The adjustable backrest folds completely and saddle leather armrests complete the design, giving it a distinctive expression full of character.
