The Hai Lounge Chair embraces the clean lines of contemporary furniture without compromising the traditional comfort of the classic armchair. While the top portion resembles the strong lines of the latter, the wire base is something else altogether. It adds an airy aesthetic that makes it appear lightweight. This is helpful considering that the Hai Lounge Chair is a flatpack piece of furniture.

Designed by Italian designer Luca Nichetto for One Nordic Furniture Company, the Hai Lounge Chair boasts a folding backrest that makes shipping much easier. The hinges allowing this are concealed.

It is worth noting that the Hai Lounge Chair is the first collaboration with a non-Nordic designer. Considering its visual and practical appeal, it hopefully won't be the last.
