It is as modern as ever – its shape resembles a bowl and is comfortable for young and old.

Papasan chair for the lounge area in the house or garden
The special feature of the Papasan chair is its construction. The frame and the seat are not connected to each other and this allows some flexibility. Modern designs can be found as a folding chair – they are easy to transport and do not take up much space. The compact shape is the reason why it is suitable for the patio. The cushions can be used as benches or reading corners. The ergonomic design is perfect for relaxing on the terrace or balcony. Other designers have transformed it into a futuristic piece of furniture made of plastic. The concept remains the connecting element between the chair from the 50’s and the new models – a comfortable furniture design that invites you to relax.
