As the name suggest, the design is based on the silhouette of a person sitting in lotus position. The sophisticated design makes this chair adaptable for numerous applications. The material is in high quality moulded foam. The base is in brushed stainless steel with return swivel. The Lotus family was introduced as a sled base chair and sofa in 2003, and since then used in numerous prestigious building projects around the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
