HIMACS: Balance Lounge Chair

Balance Lounge Chair

Designed by Esa Vesmanen and manufactured by Pure Design Finland, Balance Lounge Chair’s slim lines and sensory experience inspire feelings of lightness and balance with one’s surroundings. New sensuous materials UPM Grada® themoformable wood panel and HIMACS natural acrylic stone are merged with newest quality technology to create an intimate experience, which integrates aesthetic and ergonomics as an essential ingredient in relaxation. The lounge chair’s UPM Grada® shell follows the contours of the body and its tubular steel base imparts a lightweight and decisively contemporary design.

Balance Lounge Chair has won The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design 2013 GOOD DESIGN™ award. The trademarked awards, established by renowned architects, Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., in Chicago in 1950, is the world's most prestigious global award for new product design.

“I am inspired by the basic elements of life, light and matter,” said Vesmanen. “As an interior architect and a sailing enthusiast, I wanted to merge experimental Finish furniture design with contemporary technology to echo the fundamental human response to wind and waves. The strongest aesthetic experience—when you feel shivers down your spine—is experienced when the materials, details and atmosphere touch you.”
