Chairs are often placed so they are viewed from behind. The designers behind Tools® embraced this idea to achieve the Abalone lounge chair. Many lounge chairs have the same shape on the outside as on the inner surface where one sits, but Abalone has a hard surface on the outside in the form of 3D moulded oak veneer, and a soft inner side of moulded foam under leather upholstery.
The 3D moulded veneer gives the dining chair a beautiful curved, well-conceived back. And the soft inner surface makes the dining chair comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. In other words, Abalone has an organic shape on the outside and a soft inner surface like the Asian clam of the same name. The dining chair is designed with minimised dimensions to provide ample space around the table.
