‘seley’ is the result of two years of collaboration with Swiss designer Frédéric Dedelley. He based his concept on the basic principle of the horgenglarus chairs, which were developed in the 1920s and have lost none of their relevance today.
Back then, a seat frame was created from a single piece of bent square timber that was so solid that the legs could be firmly screwed onto it. This created a chair that never wobbles, even under the heaviest of loads, and is nearly indestructible. The struts of classic bentwood chairs were no longer needed.

‘seley’ consists of minimal parts, with two front and two back legs with a square cross-section, a seat and backrest. As usual from horgenglarus, the seat frame and legs are made of solid wood. The backrest and armrests form one single piece made of plywood, which is thermally deformed and cut to make the ‘seley’ truly unique – the backrest and armrests unite to create one single, ergonomically optimised shell. This allows for a variety of sitting positions: the generously sized seat and organic unification of backrest and armrests without corners or edges enable the user to turn left or right as desired. ‘seley’ is as flexible, comfortable and informal as an armchair, but more elegant and refined in its appearance.

The spring core seat cushion guarantees first-class comfort. It is then covered with leather or a stretchy wool fabric. ‘seley’ is available in beech, oak and walnut and can be painted any colour. The colour of the fabric or leather can also be selected to match the wood tone. The spring core seat cushion is included as standard on every armchair. ‘seley’ is also optionally available with padded back and armrest shell.
