Architectural Elements Used to Create the Versatile Windowseat Lounge

Do you see yourself owning a versatile chair that is both a seating unit and a “personal room with a view”? Named according to its functions, the Windowseat Lounge was designed by San-Francisco-based Mike & Maaike as an exploration of  “the idea of sub-architectural space, creating a room-within-a-room complete with its own unique perspective.”

Architectural elements like walls and ceilings applied to the design of a chair resulted in the creation of this interesting furniture concept. Both public and private spaces can benefit from the design of this modern chair. Its design creates a privacy bubble around the user, but it also allows the person using it to stay alert and in touch with the surroundings. Imagine it adorning lobbies and airport lounges, or a multi-generation home: this chair evokes the modern alliance between a rigid molded frame and its foam-padded upholstered body. Resting on a swiveling steel base, the versatile Windowseat Lounge measures 56 inches in height, 32 inches in width and 34inches in depth.
