In 2015 we were presented with the softly upholstered Embrace Chair by Carl Hansen & Son. This year, The Embrace Series is expanding with the relaxed, exceptionally comfortable additions of The Embrace Lounge Chair and matching footstool. Both these elements designed by Austrian trio, EOOS.

The two additions to the series naturally supplement Carl Hansen & Son’s furniture collection, creating a perfect connection between dining chair and lounge chair design. The distinctive wood frame is complimented with a flawless contras of soft upholstery in a new, yet authentic sense. The Austrian design trio EOOS explained that the same soft, snug feel of the Embrace Chair lies within the new counterpart, but the lounge chair has a more laid-back silhouette.


The Embrace Lounge Chair Design

The Embrace Series is based on a wood frame that, with its lightness, craftsmanship, quality and especially its sculpture feel, reflect Carl Hansen & Son’s distinctive characteristics. The EOOS designers then augmented this with an extremely soft cushion that folds in three dimensions to provide support for back and arms, creating a unique wrap-around seat.

When you stand in front of the chair, you want to touch it, to sit in it, and to never leave it.

-Gernot Bohmann from EOOS.


The frame and upholstery of the lounge chair pay equally significant roles, but the difference between last years Embrace Chair and the Embrace Lounge Chair lie in the sitting position, influencing angles and geometry, amount of filling in the cushion, and the envelope feel of the chair. Overall, it has greater volume, softer filling and a bolder proportion.

With its extreme lightness and comfort, high profile design and relaxed elegance, and multi-use in both public and private spaces, the design team of EOOS and Carl Hansen & Son produced a beautiful and function addition to the home.
