Shift your weight back into the Monte Carlo Chair and you may discover that this contemporary seat is intended for the young and fit. Because it's angled very close to the ground, one can find it difficult to crouch down and to emerge from the low lounger without a bit of extra work on the part of his arms and legs.
What Ola Giertz strove to recreate in this recliner was the experience of sitting in the driver's seat of a Monte Carlo race car. Your hips are back, your knees are up and your posture is kept recumbent. The unique form of the armchair is composed from what might have been a single rectangular panel, with the backrest and the seat bent inwards for support.
