Largo is a very contemporary and universal-purpose recliner chair with a light shape. The cushions look as if they are lying loosely on top of the frame of the chair, which gives an impression of comfort. The cushions have a unique pointed “pillow stitch seam” finish to accentuate the slim design. Also the dynamic form of the full armrests refers to the shape of a pillow that appears to be attached to the chair. The version with open armrests provides additional refinement while the contours of the armrests repeat the same dynamic form. As with all recliner chairs in Durlet’s range, this chair is available as a low or high model, on a metal star-shaped base or a (leather-clad) solid wooden disc base, and with a synchronous reclining system or a three-step reclining system for television watching.
The power of the Viennese designer Kai Stania lies in the perfect symbiosis between aesthetics and functionality in his work. The impressive list of national and international prizes that he has already been awarded from a relatively young age confirms this: his record includes a nomination for the ‘Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland’, iF Product Design Awards, Red Dot Awards, Good Design Awards, Inerior Innvation Awards (with Durlet), a selection for ‘Die Auswahl’ of the ten best Austrian furniture designs, etc.
