The Frigate chair is a new member of the Plydesign product family. Our aim was to find an affordable application to the 3D-veneer technology of the Danzer company and make it’s unique characteristics, the possibility for higher comfort available for wider audiences.
The seat shell is assembled from two pieces, therefore several colour- and material combinations are possible, just like in the case of the earlier Flagship armchair of the brand. This construction enables an economical production as the seat part can be made with conventional form-pressed plywood technology, only the ergonomically most important backrest requires 3D-veneer. The three-dimensional backrest provides appropriate lumbar support, the front edge of the seat is bent downwards in order not to cut into the occupant’s thighs. This way the chair can offer the same comfort and ergonomic quality as the fully 3D plywood shells, but it can bring these benefits to much more people.
The upholstery fits exactly into the recess created by the overlapping parts, thus becoming an integral part of the composition. The legs are held to the shell by 8 screws and are easily detachable for economical transport.
