Armada armchair by Zoran Jedrejcic
Designed by Croatia-based Zoran Jedrejcic, the Armada Armchair, is surprisingly devoid of arm rests. The base of the piece is comprised of a steel frame covered in wood, and the seat features a thin steel layer covered in high quality leather.
The seat is at the same time sculptural and sleek. It features a bottom frame made from solid wood like American Walnut, Elm, Cherry, and Pear, and a seat that’s a combination of thin steel covered by high-quality leather or fur giving the Armada the structural integrity it needs while preserving the weightless appearance.
Additional elements, such as cushions, upholstery and back support, can be added to Armada via magnets.
On request, it could be tailor made, respecting client’s measures and special needs.
