Low Lounging with Playful Proportions – The Sejour Lounge Chair from GUBI now available at Ultimo

Design / Life

The Sejour Lounge Chair is a low-slung chair with playful proportions characterized by a deep, generous seat and a gently curving backrest set atop a slender metal frame and optional wooden armrests. This ingenious pairing of contrasting forms, weights and materials results in an intriguing, almost anthropomorphic form.

“The structure of the Sejour Lounge Chair, together with its wooden elements, create an interesting context – and it is precisely in this interpretation, bringing simplicity through materials and form, that we can reimagine an established concept for the contemporary world”  –  Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, GamFratesi

Inspired by a contemporary take on the midcentury Scandinavian design tradition, the Sejour Lounge Chair’s soft, rounded backrest envelops its solid, welcoming seat, offering tremendous comfort and an invitation to stay awhile, as its French name suggests. The curve of the back supports a restful sitting position even over long periods of time. The intimate dialogue between the two forms results in a small, yet elegant chair with a restrained and calm aesthetic.
