Designed by Tom Dixon, Wingback Chair was inspired by traditional 17th-century Wingback and balloon-back archetypes and was developed for Shoreditch House Members Club. Its expressive sweeping curves allow designers to specify Wingback in the center of spaces as a sculptural intervention rather than merely a piece of seating. The wings provide convenient acoustic protection for mobile phone use and a headrest for quick snoozes.Materials & Features:
