The Fiber Armchair Leather Tube Base has been created by Iskos-Berlin for the brand Muuto. Muuto takes classic Scandinavian designs and gives them new perspectives for the future. The work of the Iskos-Berlin Studio fits neatly into this philosophy. It aims to create everyday objects that not only function well but have a strong visual identity. The Fiber Armchair Leather Tube Base does exactly that. With its embracing curves and tactile texture, it is sculptural in appearance without compromising on comfort. To create this balance of appearance and comfort while taking up minimum space in its environment, every element has been precisely engineered.
The shell of the Fiber Armchair Leather Tube Base is constructed from an innovative combination of recyclable plastic and wood fibres. The material is heated and poured into a mould to create the curved shape of the shell. The seat's shell is then coated with black aniline leather upholstery. The curved seat shell contrasts pleasingly with the straight lines of the black powder-coated steel frame. The Fiber Armchair Leather Tube Base is 77cm in height, 54.5cm in width and 55cm in depth. The armchair is stackable and the feet are fitted with plastic glides to protect floors.
