T04 Soft Lounge Chair is designed by Thomas Bentzen with devoted attention to both elegance and support. Its soft curves lend both substantial presence and comfort.



Sit Down, Lean Back

Soft Lounge Chair is generous in its character, size and materiality. The soft back and seat curves embodies an honest design language in which all parts are visible and a part of the experience. The result is great comfort and seating ergonomics that support an indulgent moment of repose.


Slow Craft Meets Modern Tech

Soft Lounge Chair shows an intelligent application of molded veneer, rendering it like a cloth that surrounds the solid-ash construction. The double curves serve to strengthen the overall construction.



The Woodwork

Soft Lounge Chair is made of solid ash: a light wood with beautiful texture and pattern that adds a fine and distinctive expression. Soft Lounge Chair’s unpretentious nature makes an unassuming material like ash is a fitting choice. The wood’s beautiful structure helps support the chair’s soft shapes, and its natural variation between dark and light reflect seasonal changes, giving an honest and organic look and feel.
The chair is coated with a very thin water based lacquer, that allows easy cleaning while emphasising the delicate structure of the wood. We work only in FSC-certified wood, to ensure that forests and their inhabitants are regenerated and protected.


Sustainability

Soft Lounge Chair is designed through TAKT’s Eco System Design principle and are shipped as flat packs, which itself is made from recycled materials. Using this space-efficient packaging method means CO2 emissions are minimised. In fact, we can pack 5 to 7 times more products in the same volume and therefore minimise CO2 emission during transportation. The compact shipping also protects the furniture so it is less likely to be damaged during transport. 
Soft Lounge Chair is 100% eco-certified and produced using wood from sustainable forests and the full supply chain is certified. It is constructed for disassembly, meaning that Soft Lounge Chair can be separated out into key materials for recycling and worn parts can be replaced. Soft Lounge Chair is constructed and tested for durability and has a five-year warranty.


Transparency

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.



Pricing made clear

We continue the tradition of design for everyone by being fair and up-front with our prices.
To us, transparency is about inviting the public into our inner-workings so that you can see how we do things – that we price things fairly, so you don’t pay more than needed for good quality, but also so you pay enough to fairly support our workers, source our materials in sustainable ways, and build a business that is able to sustain itself. That’s why we believe in transparency from production, to transport to pricing.
