Wingback is a series of British classics re-mastered. Inspired by two seating archetypes: the 17th century wingback and its smaller sibling the 18th century balloon back, these refined hybrids have been re-imagined and updated for the 21st century.

The extravagant and fully upholstered form has been tweaked and teased to give an even more rakish silhouette. The frame has been re-tooled for industrial production and the shell is created in hard polyurethane foam with added lumbar support to increase the ergonomic comfort. The result is an elegant domestic sculpture, fit for practical use around the fireplaces of members clubs, the hotel lobby or the at home in the living room or parlour.
