A lounge chair for modern living
Comfort is a priority. It is a chair to sink into, to read a book or settle in for a conversation. Somewhere to utterly relax, while remaining engaged. Comprising a natural linen fabric seat slung, hammock-like, between two solid oak side components.
Sling Lounge Chair represents a brave new formal direction. With its elemental form, angled seating position and slung fabric seat, Sling Lounge Chair could be likened to Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair, and yet utterly distinctive and lighter.
Why bother choosing a certain chair? Because that chair says something about you.David Bowie
Linen fabric seat
Sling Lounge Chair comes with a completely natural linen fabric seat. Our linen is durable, strong and moth resistant. Made from flax plant fibers in Europe, the linen fabric production uses less water than almost any other type of fabric.
What you see is what you get; solid oak throughout. Made of solid oak planks. Available with or without armrests, and in natural oak and a dusty green. Two sides, two stretchers and a canvas seat in European linen, the chair packs flat to just four wooden pieces. It can be assembled with ease using just four screws, with no need for glue, and readily dismantled for transport. All parts are replaceable, ensuring Sling Lounge Chair can enjoy a long life alongside its owner.
Sling Lounge Chair is made from solid oak: a durable material with a natural weight that lends authority to the design. Our products are FSC-certified. FSC-certified forests are given time to naturally regenerate, local wildlife is sustained and worker conditions are balanced. Oak has a characteristic structure which gives a beautiful texture and a familiar tangibility to the surface. The surface is treated with natural white-pigmented oil or water-based lacquer. An oil treatment allows the wood to develop a characterful patina over time, and will also enable you to easily repair damage to the surface by applying light sandpaper and a new oil treatment – again and again.
Sling Lounge Chair is designed through TAKT’s Eco System Design principles and are shipped component-based as flat packs. We can pack 5 to 7 times more products in the same volume and therefore minimise CO2eq-emissions during transportation. Sling Lounge Chair is eco-certified and produced using wood from sustainable forests and the full supply chain is certified. It is constructed for disassembly, meaning that all components are replaceable and worn parts can be replaced. Comes with a five-year warranty.
We don’t service an expensive network of physical retail stores or distribution warehouses. We work directly with the best furniture workshops. When we receive your order, we dispatch the product from our central warehouse in Denmark and ship it to you directly. That is how we can put more value into the product, sell it to you at a fair price and keep you informed along the way.
To us, TAKT has a mission where sustainability, longevity and truthful economy are equally thought about in all that they do. This is what ‘Good Design’ is all about, and what we are dedicated to.Sam Hecht
