This pair of lounge chairs, ‘model 137’ designed in 1957 and manufacturerd by furniture manufacturers France & Son. The Japan serie takes inspiration from traditional Japanese building techniques. Defined by a visible, solid horizontal backrest, which sits elegantly upon the slightly tapered legs, the teak frame is a reference to a traditional Japanese temple door. With an open, spacious seat, finished with Bouclé upholstery, the minimalist design truly invites you to sit back and relax. A stunning addition to a contemporary living room, the Japan Lounge Chair fuses the beauty of Japanese traditions with the expert nature of Danish craftsmanship. Marked by the maker.
