Theia collection for Freifrau (2022)

In this, our second design for Freifrau, our concept was to fuse the frame and the seating shell – not just in technical, but in optical terms, too. This is something we achieved by deliberately extending the frame into the back of the shell. Looking at the Theia Armchair, it certainly has something of an inset gemstone about it – and this is a deliberate reference. With our new model Theia, the studio have made the chair the jewel in the crown of any room, placing equal emphasis both on the upholstery and the frame as design elements in such a way as the viewer sees them as one. In the back of the chair, a space is enveloped by the flowing lines of the frame, emphasising the concept and highlighting the lightness of the model. The Theia Armchair is available both with low and high armrests, with a range of materials and colours offering a multitude of custom configurations.
