The Normann Copenhagen Pad Lounge Chair High Swivel - Leather is characterised by the combination of different materials, tactility, and texture. The shell is moulded oak veneer which contrasts with the sumptuous leather upholstery, both of which blend harmoniously with the metal frame which adds a feeling of strength and solidity. The various elements of the design combine together to create a full and balanced design that allows you to relax in unparalleled comfort. The leather upholstered version makes the perfect statement piece for your living space. Part of the Normann Copenhagen Pad collection.

“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
