Swiss furniture company Lehni and backpack label QWSTION have created a minimal lounge chair that they say is to “carry people through life”. Titled ‘Ensō’, the design is defined by functionality, timeless materiality, and a conscious use of resources.

Combining Lehni’s innovative metal crafting and QWSTION’s progressive textile development, the two companies have united comfort and elegance with ‘Ensō’. Designed to experience a high degree of exclusivity and relaxation both indoor and outdoor, the chair is suitable as a stand-alone furniture accent while simultaneously creating pleasant seating areas in private or collective spaces. Manufactured in Dübendorf, Switzerland, few materials are used to create its sleek modern look: including recycled aluminum and regenerative plant fibers (QWSTION’s biodegradable Bananatex®), which form the base and seat. A visual highlight in public spaces, informal offices, and at home, the chair’s distinctive form, nuanced sense of proportion, and combination of materials are testament to the fusion of craft and industry, old and new, defining Swiss Design.
