An anonymous vintage armchair seen at a relative’s home and automobile seating inspired Arian Brekveld in the design of his ‘Vik’ lounge chair for the Netherlands’ Spectrum Meubelen.

“Car seats are always comfortable. They are beautifully made, the materials are used in a clever way and, although they are small, they provide a lot of comfort!” says Brekveld. “I wanted to translate those qualities in my design.”

Adding and subtracting inches, Brekveld kept experimenting with the Vik armchair’s design until he realized the optimum amount of comfort. The armchair has a low seat, carried by a light pipe frame. A clearly visible construction and elegant contours created by the unbroken lines gives the chair its dynamic quality. Comfortable back supports recall those of car seats and also determine the three-dimensional shape of the seat, which is made of foam and hand-crafted in several layers.
