Waver

Konstantin Grcic, 2011

  • The original idea behind the development of Waver was to liberate the design from the conventions of familiar chair typologies: the new aesthetic of this swivel armchair draws on material properties and structural principles from the realm of outdoor sports. The energetic colours of the fabrics and the prominent emphasis of connections and functional elements give the chair a distinctly sporty character.

    Despite its simple construction with just a single layer of fabric in combination with seat and back cushions, Waver provides the sitting comfort expected from upholstered furniture. The armchair's comfort is augmented by the generously proportioned cantilever frame on a swivel-base construction, which offers great freedom of movement. As a chair for reading or watching TV, Waver makes a striking accent in the living room and other settings. Thanks to its weatherproof materials, it can also be used in the garden or on the terrace.
