The latest addition to the Plank collection designed by Konstantin Grcic is Avus.


October 17th, 2011

The latest addition to the Plank collection designed by Konstantin Grcic is Avus. Avus is a club chair which pays tribute to the characteristic qualities of this classic furniture type: great comfort, attention to detail, fine materials and refined elegance.

Use of modern material processed with cutting-edge technology from the automotive and sports industry makes Avus a radical reinterpretation of the lounge classic. Avus is a compact and physically light piece of furniture with a high degree of comfort, made for the commercial market as well as private homes.

The base in ABS is produced as a twin-sheet molded shell, reinforced with a polyurethane foam core. The stiffness of the base is contrasted by a flexible upper shell made of a single sheet of the same material.

The leather upholstery is zipped into the upper shell in one piece using a technology common in the production of high end luggage.

The choice of colour way options for house leather, base and backrest are many ranging from complete monochrome to strong contrasts.

Chair height: 800; seat height: 430; width: 730; depth: 730mm
