windy easy chair

by Gijs Papavoine from Montis

windy easy chair

Design Gijs Papavoine, 1992
Upholstery, steel legs
Made in Holland by Montis

One of the most important and practical features of this armchair is the modest amount of space it occupies. But despite its compact structure, the high concave back guarantees comfort. The high seat base gives the armchair 'active' seating characteristics and makes it suitable for people with long legs or those who want to be able to stand up easily. With the attractive geometrical shape of wind-filled sails, this easy chair conjures up images of a tethered yacht.

Gijs Papavoine studied at the institute of technology and Eindhoven Academy for Industrial Design in the product Design department. Gijs was employed as a Product Manager at Montis until 1990. In this capacity, he was jointly responsible for Montis' design philosophy. In 1990, Gijs was promoted to dedicated designer of Montis.

Windy is also offered with additional ottoman which continues the shape of the Windy fluently; therefore the 2 elements can be combined perfectly. Windy is available in your choice of a variety of fabrics and leathers, the legs are offered in high gloss chrome and the feet can be transparent, violet or anthracite.
