”Gloria is all about her dress. She can look smart for when she goes to work, dress up when going to a party, or put on something cosy when staying in. Dress her as you want her to be!” The Gloria armchair collection has been created to offer variation of expression. Choose between two backrest heights: the armchair and the high-back armchair version. Both armchair versions have been developed with a standard upholstery cover, which exposes the metal leg structure, as well as a second cover with a noticeably longer skirt that covers up the metal leg structure and gives the chair’s silhouette more volume. Additionally, both the standard cover and the longer cover are available in a more plush version with deeper padding. Gloria’s distinctive, softly-rounded shape is derived from the desire to support the body gently. The curved surfaces offer comfort in a natural, ergonomic way, reducing the need for thick volumes of padding and result in a slender and elegant design. The high level of comfort achieved in Gloria is thanks in part to the use of a recyclable, low-energy consumption technology that allows for up to 70% lighter seat structure solutions without sacrificing their structural properties. Gloria’s rounded shape means that she always finds her place within any interior.
